Want to browse the stacks for biographies? In the Library of Congress classification system, biographies are generally not shelved all in one separate area. Instead, a biography of a person is catalogued in the subject area most closely associated with that person. For example, Albert Einstein was a physicist, so his biography will be found in the QD section; Mark Twain was an American author, so his biography will be in the PS section. To make browsing for a biography easier, in the Utica Campus Library look for books with the red, white, and blue "Biography" sticker on the spine.
