Locations Guide

This guide to call number locations for materials in the Perry-Castañeda Library includes the PCL Stacks on Levels 3-6. Each Level is arranged in Sections A-S, identified on maps near the elevators and on signs at the ends of each row of shelves.

Oversize books, which have call numbers preceded by -F- or -Q-, are located in sections A and B on Level 3-5: see the OVERSIZE MATERIALS section below. For example: -Q- TR 970 F6 1927 is in stack 5B, not 6Q.

Checking for books not on the shelf

  • Library Catalog records include a due date when a book is checked out, or a status display such as MISSING, ON HOLD SHELF, etc.
    • Verify that the status is AVAILABLE, indicating that the book should be on the shelf in its correct location.
    • Double-check the call number; note any special locations, such as oversize (-F- or -Q-) or locations other than PCL Stacks.
  • Check the Distribution Area (behind offices opposite the elevators on the appropriate Level) where books and periodical volumes are sorted in separate areas for reshelving. If staff are working there, ask for their help in locating the item.
  • Check copier areas on Levels 2, 4 and 6.
  • If the Library Catalog record shows a request button, click to have the item held when it is available for you to check out. Consult staff at the Research Help and Check Out Desk if the catalog shows the item is not requestable.
  • Ask at the Research Help and Check Out Desk on Level 2 for help in locating other copies.
