Ebooks: Many of Gordon Library's books are available digitally, and you can access these via the links in WPI Library Search. For example:
Physical books: Physical books in the library are organized by call number. When you find a print book in the WPI Library Search, look for the book's call number:
Call numbers A-N are on the 2nd floor of the library. Call numbers P-Z are on the 1st floor. (Please note that the main entrance to the library is on the 2nd floor.)
