Print books: Print 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:
Gordon Library uses the Library of Congress call number system. Call numbers A-N are on the 3rd 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.)
You can check books out at the information services desk on the main floor. Your WPI ID is your library card.
Is there something you need that the WPI library doesn't have? Our Interlibrary Loan service allows WPI students and faculty to request items from other libraries free of charge.
