LC Call Numbers: History

You will find most books on pre-Enlgihtenment European history in the C and D ranges on the second floor of the library. The 'C' class covers general subjects, including the history of civilization, archaeology, and biography. The 'D' class encompasses world history with sub-divisions by region (excluding the Americas). History lends itself to an extraordinary insterdisciplinary range, however, so your research may take you into other areas as well.
