Call Number Locations

Currently, physical access to collections is limited to the ‘Request, Sign, Grab and Go‘ service for circulating materials

Scroll down to see a text list of call number locations. View images of Hamilton Library floor plans here.

Books and journals are arranged on the shelves in call number order. Each book and journal has its own unique call number (letter/number code) printed on its cover. After you obtain a call number from the Library’s catalog (OneSearch), use the list below to determine the floor on which the call number is located.

Hamilton Library has two sections, the Hamilton Main Building and the Hamilton Addition. The entrance is in the Hamilton Main Building.

If a call number is located in the Hamilton Addition, cross the Bridge walkway between the buildings. The Bridge is located behind Elevators 3-4-5-6 on Floors 1 and 2 (only).
