Most books and other items in the library are organized by the Library of Congress Classification system. Native American studies is a multidisciplinary field so books can be found in several areas. Native American history and culture can be found in the E's and F's. Native American law can be found in the KF's. Art is in the N's and Native American languages are in the PM's.

Here are the subjects associated with specific call numbers, in case you'd like to browse. However, if you are looking for something specific, searching the library catalog is usually quicker.
