Library Catalog Search


Browsing the Shelves for History Books

Jackson College uses Library of Congress Classification (LCC) to organize our books, which uses a series of one or two letters followed by numbers to form the call number.

You can find books on history both upstairs in our main stacks and downstairs in our oversize collection - all are available for checkout! Our oversize books are big volumes which often have pictures. There are also books in our reference collection downstairs that are extremely helpful - these are available to be used in the library.

Here are the areas to browse when looking for books on history!

D - World History

E - History of the Americas, mostly United States

- Local History, Canada, Latin America

G - Geography, Anthropology


Picturing History

Abraham Lincoln and Sojourner Truth
