Arrangement of Library Materials
Business, ESL, Medical books, and General Eduction books are shelved separately. All books are cataloged according to Library Congress (LC) classification and are identified by a label on the spine of the book. The call number is used to shelve books on similar subjects together. They are arranged alphabetically, then numerically.
Borrowing Library Materials
A valid student ID is required to check out books, periodicals and other study aids. Books may be checked out for two weeks, and renewed for an additional two weeks. A maximum of four books may be checked out at one time. To check out library materials, please see the library staff or school administrator.
Reserve Materials / Classroom Texts
Current classroom texts are designated with a Reserve label on the spine of the book. These books are restricted to “Library Use Only” for two hours. This period may be extended, only with the instructor’s permission.
