You knew the library was the place to go when you had a research project, but did you know there is a collection of comic books on the fourth floor?

Or humor books?

Or recent, popular movies?

Helpful Guides for Browsing...

MU Libraries shelves books using the Library of Congress call number system. In this system each subject area is represented by a letter. Check the Library of Congress Classification guide for more details.

If you find a call number that seems interesting, use the book location guide to find it within Ellis Library. 

And as always, MERLIN gives exact call numbers for specific books.
