Oversized Books


Sometimes when you find a book listed in the online catalog, it will have a notation at the bottom of the record that it is oversized:

Oversized books

Oversized volumes are:

  • too large to rest on the regular sized library shelves. 
  • shelved apart from the regular sized books
  • use a call number for the appropriate subject.  In the above example the call number for this book is G860 .P6 1978
  • located in the OVERSIZED collection at the far south end of the 2nd Floor stacks of Barret Library.
