Getting Started

from the Library home page:

  • Primo, our catalog, allows you to search across a large portion of the library's collections to explore topics, identify relevant databases, and evaluate the results, all within a single search experience. Results include books, journal articles, and more.
  • The Databases tab will help you to start looking for journal articles. 
  • The Journals tab lists what journals and newspapers the library has access to. If you have found a citation and want to see if you can get to the full-text, use this tab to search for the journal title (not the article title)

Circulating books related to math are primarily located in the following Library of Congress call number ranges

Books on mathematics have call numbers starting with QA 1 and ending with QA 939:

LC Call Numbers    Description

QA273 → 280   Probabilities. Mathematical Statistics
QA299.6 → 433   Analysis
QA440 → 699   Geometry. Trigonometry. Topology

These ranges will be housed primarily on the basement floor of the Schaffer Library.
