English Literature


The Library of Congress Classification System arranges books by Subject, so browsing the shelves in Reference (3000 Level, Booth Library) or in the Bookstacks (1000 Level, Booth Library) in these call number areas will introduce you to the collection in General Literature and English (British) Literature.  This is a very large collection, so use the Online Catalog to locate titles on specific subjects, for example: "Shakespeare's Sonnets" or "Women in Chaucer."  Also, the Library of Congress assigns unique Author Numbers to most authors and the Online Catalog will help you find these author numbers, for example Jane Austen PR4034 or J. K. Rowling PR6068.O93.
