Search ODU Library Catalog

Print books owned by ODU Libraries are cataloged and shelved using the Library of Congress classification system. Using the LC system results in books on the same topic having similar call numbers, and as a result they are usually close to each other on the shelf. If you use Monarch OneSearch to identify a few books on your subject and go to the shelf, you will often be able to browse nearby books and find others that interest you on the same or similar topics.

The classifications for history fall under D, E, and F.  The specific ranges are:

  •  D  General History
  • DA  Great Britain
  • DC  France
  • DD  Germany
  • DF  Greece
  • DK  Russia
  • DS  Asia
  • DT  Africa
  • E  United States
  • F  US, Canada, Latin America

Browsing in these call number ranges may lead to discovery of valuable material in addition to the specific items listed in this guide.

LOCATION:  Books with these call numbers are shelved on the 3rd floor. 

Ebooks: Searching Monarch OneSearch will also help you discover ebooks that ODU offers. Search for them the same way you search for print books - title, author, subject. In the search results, these will offer a link to the full text of the ebook and you will be able to access it if you are affiliated with ODU by logging in with your Midas credentials.
