Armacost Library arranges books by topic as defined by the Library of Congress classification system. This organiation is reflected in the call numbers displayed often on the spine of library books. Because Spatial Studies is interdisciplinary, there is no single range of call numbers that can adequately reflect the range of topics covered. The following are some ranges you might find useful.

Call Number Range Main Topics
BL-BX Religious studies
D-F History
G General geography, maps, atlases
GV Sports, games
HB, HC Economics
HM-HV Sociology
J Political Science
