Book and DVD Locations: Book and DVD Locations

Where to find items in the Library's collections.


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 over 120,000 books and 6,000 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.
