Chinese Studies

Where are Chinese books located in the Libraries?

Chinese books, like English books, are organized on the shelves according to the Library of Congress Classification system, which separates all knowledge into 21 classes. A letter of the alphabet identifies each class (for instance, B for philosophy, D for history ), subclasses by combinations of letter ( for instance, BL for religion, DS for history of Asia) then subtopics within classes and subclasses by a numerical notation (for instance, BL1830 for Confucianism, DS701 – 799.9 for Chinese History).

The following chart indicates locations for Chinese studies subject areas that are the collection focus of the Libraries. For detailed information, please refer to the Chinese Print Resources Location Guide.
