Locating Fiction in Ingram Library

The Library currently has fiction in two locations: (1) older, unclassified collection arranged by author, (2) classified titles in the literature section (P's). Until the fiction collection is completely reclassified, works by an author may appear in both locations.

A search in the online catalog is the easiest method to determine the location/classification for a particular author or title. Titles in the Fiction collection have a ZF1 configuration call number.

If browsing is preferred, the Library of Congress breakdown for the language and literature classification is as follows:

P Philology

PA Classical

PB-PH Modern European languages

PG Russian literature

PJ-PK Oriental, Indo-Iranian

PL-PM Eastern Asia, Africa, Oceania, Indian

PN Literature (General)

PQ1-3999 French literature

PQ4000- Italian, Spanish, Portuguese

PR English literature

PS American literature

PT1-4999 German literature

PT5000- Dutch, Scandinavian

PZ Short story collections (no longer used)

Example of arrangement for individual authors:


PS700-893 Colonial period Cutter by surname

PS991-3390 19th century Cutter by surname

PS3500-3549 1900-1960 Number for 1st letter of surname
