Finding Books

How do you find books on our shelves? Look for the location and the call number.

The location tells you where in the library the book is located. Some of the most common locations you'll see are:

  • Muskingum Stacks - The main book collection, located on all three floors.
  • Muskingum Popular Reading - In the Gupta Reading Room
  • MuskingumYoung Adult - In the Gupta Reading Room
  • Muskingum Juvenile Collection - Upstairs in the Pingledis Family Children's Library

Call numbers tell you where the book is located, as well as what it's about. The Muskingum University Library uses Library of Congress call numbers.

  • A-D - Main floor in the Burlingame Room (on your right when you enter)
  • N - Main floor in the Gardener Center
  • H-HJ - Main floor in the Hutchinson Reference Center
  • HM-Z - Basement

Be sure to look at the books shelved around the one you want. They're shelved by subject, so you may find a great book that way!
