Classified Resources at the SU Libraries

Browsing Library Collections by Call Numbers

Although some older books are perhaps classified in the Dewey Decimal Classification System, most Syracuse University Libraries print resources are classified in and physically arranged according to the alpha-numeric Library of Congress (LC) Classification System.  [NOTE: Although they have no physical presence, e-books are also assigned base LC classification numbers to make them findable via Classic Catalog "Call Number" searches.]

The LC system has allocated Class H to Social Sciences, with Subclasses HB-HJ addressing various aspects of Economics: Economic Theory and Demography (HB); Economic History and Conditions (HC); Industries, Land Use, and Labor (HD); Transportation and Communications (HE); Commerce (HF); Finance (HG); and Public Finance (HJ).

“H” call numbers are assigned to Economics holdings that are shelved in the Reference Collection on the 2nd floor of Bird Library and in the general and oversize stacks on the 3rd floor of Bird Library.

Note:  Less frequently used library materials are kept off campus, either at The Warehouse or at The Facility.  (The latter is a high-density storage space at 1556 Jamesville Avenue.)  Materials in remote storage can be requested for next-business-day delivery to a library on campus.

To see an outline of the entire "H" Class, open the document below, and then click on any Economics Subclass of interest for its classification scheme.
