Environment Call Numbers

Because the environment touches everything else, materials on the environment are spread throughout the library. The major sections are GE (Environmental Science), QC800's (Meterorology & Climatology), TD (Environmental Technology), and TJ800's (Renewable Energy). But there may be resources in D,E, and F (History), H (Social Science), K (Law), R (Medicine), and S (Agriculture). Have a look at the New Books to the left to see some of the range of call numbers.

You'll find environmental materials in the STACKS (2nd & 3rd floors), Oversized Books (3rd floor), Media (1st floor), and Reference (1st & 2nd floor).

Here are the subjects associated with specific call numbers, in case you'd like to browse. However, if you are looking for something specific, searching SouthernSearch is usually quicker.
