Design E-books and Daley Library print books

* Oversized and ** Double Oversized print books in Daley Library

Print books that have an asterisk ( * ) in front of the call number are oversized, meaning that they are too large to fit on regular-sized shelves. All the oversized books in the N call number range are shelved together. The regular-sized books in the N call number range follow in order after these. There is signage on the end of every shelf range in the N range indicating where the oversized books are shelved. 

Books with two asterisks in front of the call number ( ** ) are double-oversized books. They are located on low shelves along the west wall on the fourth floor of Daley Library.
