Where are the Old Class materials at Robarts?

Before we started using Library of Congress classification system, Robarts books were catalogued using the 'Old Class' system.  Many older works are still catalogued this way.

Journals & periodicals

  • Journals and periodicals: 9th floor Robarts, ranges 6–14
  • Distinguished by a letter P at the beginning of the call number
  • Example: P LE N

Monographs & pamphlets

  • Mongraphs and pamphlets are in Robarts storage
  • Sometimes mistakenly marked as 'Stacks' in the catalogue record
  • Pamphlets distinguished by "Pamph" at beginning of the call number
  • Example: Pamph. HAm. S.
