Help for patrons using the Library's Books & Media Catalog

How can I find books similar to the one I already found?

One way to see similar books is to open the Browse the Shelf option. Our books are organized by Library of Congress Call Number, which is a system that groups books by subject (instead of by genre like your public library). Books that are classified in the same subject will live near each other on the shelf, and the Browse the Shelf view lets you see what’s nearby.

To learn more about subjects and how they can connect you to other books or videos, see Subjects.
