Although we are not the public library when it comes to finding books you would read "for fun," we do have titles that would be considered "popular fiction." However, they can be a bit challenging to find. . .
The Learning Commons in Love Library has a small collection of popular fiction and nonfiction books. The Curriculum Collection on Love North 2nd floor has children's and young adult fiction. The 2nd floor Link also houses our Graphic Novel Collection. More fiction can be found in the Love North basement using the call numbers below.
Because we use the Library of Congress Classification System, fiction books are organized by the author's country of origin and time period during which the book was written and then by the author's last name. In addition, literary criticism and translations of specific titles are shelved side by side with the novels.
Here is a brief breakdown of the call numbers for fiction from various countries:
|PR 9205-9570||Caribbean, African, and Asian literature written in English|
|PQ 3809-3999||French written outside of France|
|PT 3808-3971.2||German written outside of Germany|
|PK 5401-5471||Indian literature, regardless of language|
|PQ9421-9999||Portuguese written outside of Portugal|
|PQ 7020-8929||Literature written in Spanish outside of Spain|
You can also search the library catalog to see if we have specific books by searching for a specific author or title.
If you want access to a more extensive popular fiction collection, the Lincoln City Libraries (the public library system in Lincoln) are a great resource--and the main branch (Bennett Martin) is just down the street at 14th & N streets.
