Find Books at ODU Libraries

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.

These are the call number ranges related to the subject of Geography:

  • G  Geography - Atlases, Maps
  • GA  Mathematical Geography; Cartography
  • GB  Physical Geography
  • GC  Oceanography
  • GF  Human Ecology; Anthropogeography

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

Government publications: Many government publications, mainly from 1990 forward, are included in the Library Catalog.  To identify older government publications, use the Monthly Catalog of U.S. Government Publications 1895-1976, or Catalog of U.S. Government Publications 1976 forward.

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.
