Cataloging the EMC Library

There are six categories in the EMC library, and each has been assigned its own letter. Within the categories, primary texts are cataloged alphabetically by author, or by title if no author is present. Secondary texts are cataloged alphabetically by author or editor. The numbers assigned to each entry is intended to aid in the location of a text, and to aid in the addition of new volumes to the library. Those texts assigned a Special Collections ID are fragile, rare, or very old, and should only be read in the EMC.
