Locations of the books you will find in the catalog
When you look up a book in our library catalog, you will mainly see two locations for the books that you find in your results:
Sewanee General Collection: The general collection just refers to all of the books that you can check out from the library. General collection books are found on all three floors of the library, arranged by call numbers that begin with letters (usually). You can find out where your books would be by using the maps and location guides found on all the floors. Or just ask us at the front desk, we're happy to help you!
Sewanee Archives Books or Sewanee Special Collections: The library archives is next door to the duPont library and accessible only when Archives staff are available there. Books and other items in the Archives must be used there and remain there.
