Browsing for Materials by Call Number Range

When searching for works on immigration and the law, it is important to use the library catalog to find the exact location of books. The catalog will also tell you if a book is checked out and can also help you find books located at the Reserve desk or in other special library collections.

If you would like to browse immigration books in the library, this guide lists the library call number ranges for some of the basic categories of gender and law issues. Note: you can also use the library catalog to browse by call number electronically.
