DeWitt Library organizes the collection using the Library of Congress classification system. This can be confusing because most elementary and secondary schools classify books by the Dewey Decimal System.

Dr. Brower has selected possible titles from the following Library of Congress categories:

  • B - Philosophy, Psychology, Religion
  • E - U.S. History
  • H - Social Sciences
  • L - Education
  • M - Music

Bs are located on west side on the first floor of the LC. Other books are found on the 2nd floor. Ls are located on the west side of the building.
