Library books at Brandeis are arranged by Library of Congress call number.
The Library of Congress call number system arranges items by subject. This means that you will be able to find books on similiar topics next to one another on the shelf. One call number can serve as the starting point to browse the shelves for more material.
OneSearch is a database of everything the library owns (books, e-books, journals, magazines, DVDs, and other publications and media).
Use the Library Catalog tab to see if a book is available and where to find it.
If Brandeis does not a book on your topic, you can use WorldCat to search for books from other libraries and then request these books through Interlibrary Loan.
Search WorldCat and use the button on the item page place a request.
