Ways to Find Books

Start by searching the local collection, but if we don't own what you are looking for, explore other ways to request it from other regional and national libraries.

  • Search Library Catalog – Search to find books, videos, audio, and other materials in our collection.

  • Find eBooks – Instantly borrow electronic books that the Library subscribes to.

  • Request From Interlibrary Loan – Order books (and journal articles) not found in Le Moyne's catalog.

  • Search Worldcat – Search to see what libraries beyond our region have a copy of the book. It is good way to get complete citation information about the item that you need in filling out your Interlibrary Loan request.

Course Reserves

Some Computer Science course materials and textbooks are available through library source reserves. Other materials are open source resources freely available on the web. If you do not find course reserve or open source materials for a specific course please contact your professor or the Computer Science liaison librarian, Pauline Lynch Shostack ( 

Search for course reserves by course name/number or professor. See Student Course Reserve Guidelines or Faculty Course Reserve Guidelines for further information.

Computer Science Ebooks

Where Are Computer Science Books Located in the Library?

Falcone Library files books using the Library of Congress Classification system. It is more commonly used in academic libraries because, while superficially similar to the Dewey Decimal system that is more common in public and school libraries, the combination of letters and numbers makes it possible to accommodate larger collections with more granularity.

The call number ranges provided below are not necessarily definitive or complete, but can be used as a starting point if you want to browse the shelf to find books related to a given topic. A recommended technique is to search the library catalog, find a book that looks relevant and, once you are in the stacks, look at books in the same area to see if you can find others that are related to your topic.

Note: Subject-specific applications in computer or information science may be found under the general subject for that topic. For example, computer automation in agriculture will most likely be placed under class S (Agriculture) or SB (Plant Culture). As always, the library catalog will be the best source for finding such books.
