Browsing in Archaeology

The College of Wooster Libraries use the Library of Congress classification for materials. Anthropology resources are most often found under Library of Congress call letters CB (History of Civilization), CC (Archaeology), CJ (Numismatics), CN (Inscriptions), as well as the broad Library of Congress History call letters D (European, Asian, African, and Oceanic History), and  E-F (History of the Americas).
