How is the Library Organized?

The book collection is on the main and lower levels of the library. Books are organized by the Library of Congress Classification system. The DVDs are on the main level, and organized numerically (DVD 1, DVD 2, and so on).

Juvenile books are organized by the author's last name, then by year of publication.

The Library has 120,000 book and 7,000 DVDs. The online database collections include 45,000 journals, 8,000 music scores, 7,000 music albums, and 6,000 videos.

Older and lesser-used Library materials are kept in an off-campus facility. SXU alumni, faculty, staff, and students can request books from off-site storage. The books are returned to the Library in one business day.

Here is a quick tutorial about the Library of Congress call numbers from the Douglas College Library.
