This guide will help you identify library resources that will aid you in your coursework.

Helpful Hints

In addition to writing down the call number and location, remember to check the "Status" column before you go to the shelf to pull the item. Books or other items may not be on the shelf because they are checked out or recently returned.

If you cannot find a book you are looking for, please ask at the Operations Desk on the first floor.

Navigating the Online Catalog

There are several ways in which you can search the library catalog: 

  • To search by keyword, type in your search terms.
  • To search by author, type last name in first
  • To search by the title, type the exact title of the work

What is a Call Number?

A call number is a combination of letters and numbers that is given to each book or other item to mark its location. Call numbers are organized by subject and books or other items with similar subjects are grouped together. You may find other useful materials by browsing items nearby  that have similar call numbers.

For most materials, including books, the UALR Ottenheimer Library uses the Library of Congress classification system.
