New Library Subject Signs

The Library has installed new subject signs within the circulating collection (also known as “the stacks” in library world) located downstairs on the first (1st) floor! The signs are located at the top of the bookshelves which enables easier searchability from within “the stacks”, so you no longer have to walk to the endcap to check the section you are searching in.

They display the subject heading along with the Library of Congress classification number relative to the subject. We worked to ensure that the subject headings chosen reflect our collection and the courses offered at the college.

The signs also have the advantage of encouraging browseability: meaning you can easily follow the signs within the collection and scan the shelves for items you might not have originally been looking for.

So please visit our collection downstairs and let us know what you think!
