Efficiently browsing the library stacks

Ever wanted to see what kind of books we have on philosophy, or photography, or the history of Africa? Curious about where the American literature is? If you've ever wanted to browse a topic without a specific book in mind, you might have been stumped about where to start looking. You can always stop by the reference desk on the 1st floor for help, but this guide to the Dewey Decimal System will also get you started. Here is a sample of the guide from the 100s (Philosophy and Psychology) on the 2nd floor.

100 Philosophy
110 Metaphysics
120 Epistemology
130 Parapsychology & occultism
140 Philosophical schools of thought
150 Psychology
160 Logic
170 Ethics
180 Ancient, medieval & eastern philosophy
190 Modern western philosophy

As always, let us know if you need any help.
