Answer

The AU stacks are located on the lower level, second and third floors of the AU Library.  Any book that is in the AU STACKS and has the status "available" may be borrowed by AU students, faculty, staff, AU alumni, & members of the WRLC. Available books in the AU Stacks are available for Interlibrary Loan.  

Please note: AU-WCL means that the book is in the Pence Law School Library.

The AU Library uses the Library of Congress Classification scheme which groups books by subject.  The call "numbers" begin with 1,2, or 3 letters followed by numbers.  Books are shelved by subject (letter), according to their classification.

AU Stacks Directory:

Call numbers A through C, plus N and TR =  Lower Level

Call numbers D through JK = Second Floor

Call numbers JL through Z  = Third Floor (except N + TR)
