Tredway Library uses the Library of Congress (LOC) Classification system to organize our physical collection. Consider searching in the following sections of our reference collection, located on the 2nd (main) floor of the library. Remember that the following call numbers are helpful for this subject area:

  • PL1001-3208: Chinese dictionaries and literature materials
  • DS: Asian history and culture materials
    • DS701-799: Chinese History and Culture

Important note: reference books can't leave the library! You may photocopy some pages that are helpful, but the physical material can't be checked out the way that circulating books can. If you need to access reference books while you're outside the library, our electronic reference tools are very helpful.
