Pfeiffer's Catalog (no password needed). Books and e-books in both libraries. Education books usually have call numbers beginning with L and are located on the main stack level in Misenheimer. Misenheimer books can be sent to Charlotte and vice-versa.
Books: In the catalog, children’s books will have
“Juvenile” or "Newbery/Caldecott" listed as the location.
All are in Misenheimer. They are on the 4th
stack level in a separate section. In spite of what the
catalog might tell you, the books’ call numbers begin
with ZZ! To find a children’s book, write down the
call number from the catalog, go to the ZZ section on the
4th stack level, and look for your call number
WITHIN the ZZ’s. Note: Newbery and Caldecott
award-winners are in a separate section on the main floor.
Honor books are shelved in the main juvenile collection,
but are noted as honor books in the catalog.
