You will find most general history books in the C though F 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). American history on both continents can be found under 'E' and 'F'. History lends itself to an extraordinary insterdisciplinary range, however, so your research may take you into other areas as well.
