Finding Books and Ebooks

Most books in the library are located on floors 6 through 10.  Reference and Reserve books are located on the 2nd floor. With a few exceptions, books are shelved according to an alphanumeric sequence of call numbers. Ebooks are accessible online 24/7 from links in the catalogue - if you are off-campus, you'll be asked to login with your my.ryerson account.
