    SU Guerrieri Academic Commons...

    • Stacks 
      • 3rd Floor. This is our general collection. Follow link to Call Number Locator Map to find exact location of a book.
    • Folio Books
      • 3rd Floor. Folio refers to oversized books that don't fit on normal shelves. Follow link to Call Number Locator Map.
    • Juvenile Books 
      • 3rd Floor. This collection contains most of our children and young adult books. Follow link to Call Number Locator Map.
    • Reference Collection (linked to library maps)
      • 1st Floor, long shelf between the IT Help Desk and the Circulation and Research Help Desks. Collection carries over into the Pit. Reference books are generally topic overviews or materials like dictionaries and encyclopedias -- something you might need to refer to but don't need to read cover-to-cover.
      • In-library use only. Please leave reference books on a table or cart when you are finished using them so we can track how often they are used.
    • Stacks Reference
      • 3rd Floor. While these books are housed in our stacks, they are reference books and are also in-library use only. Please leave them on a table or cart when you are finished using one so we can track how often they are used. Locate these books using the Call Number Locator Map just as you would a book in the General Stacks.
    • Ready Reference
      • Kept behind the Research Help Desk. Ask the person staffing the desk to borrow the item you need.
      • In-library use only. Please return to Research Help Desk when finished using.
