Using Books for Research

The UW Library collection includes monographs (book on a single topic by one or many authors) as well as edited collections and anthologies (books in which each chapter is by different authors writing on a common theme) and grey literature. All can be useful for completing research assignments. (For more information on these types of library materials, see our YouTube video, Library Research Using Books). 

For a good explanation of how the Library of Congress Classification scheme works, check out the Library's YouTube video, Understanding the Library of Congress Classification System.
