Finding Macalester-Held Library Items
The majority of the items here in the Macalester Library are organized by the Library of Congress (LOC) Call Number System. There are two collections of items that are shelved alphabetically; those collections are our Bound Periodicals on the Lower Level of the library and our Popular DVD collection on the First Level. When you search for an item using the Worldcat Discovery search box, if the item is held in our library, the call number and location will be listed.
To learn more about what organizing items by LOC mean and how to use call numbers to find the items you're looking for, you can watch the video below.
