As a result of the interdisciplinary nature of Environmental Studies, relevant materials can be found throughout the library. While the Library of Congress Classification System does have a call number range specifically designated for Environmental Sciences, there are many other call number ranges that may contain items of interest.

Examples of broad classification areas:

  • Q= Science
  • K= Law
  • H= Social Sciences

Examples of narrower classification areas:

  • QD1-999= Chemistry
  • GF 1-900= Human Ecology
  • GE 1-350 = Environmental Sciences
  • BJ 1-1725= Ethics
  • SD1-669.5= Forestry
