While it is certainly convenient to search the catalog and have books sent to your local library for pick up, browsing the collections of a library can be very productive; often revealing sources as good as - if not better - than what you initially found in the catalog! Below is the shelf range for books on the subject of mathematics and related topics and their approximate location on the shelf as identified by the Library of Congress Classification System. If you need help finding your way around the library 'stacks,' ask any library staff member!

Before you go searching the library catalog for books on math, take a minute to think about what you want to do with the information. For example, do you:
Locate academic oriented e-books on all subjects! Your 14-digit library ID is required for off-campus access; this number is located on the back of your BCC Campus Card.
Books not available through the BCC Libraries can be obtained through Interlibrary Loan (ILL) , a service free of charge to all current BCC students, faculty, and staff!
