virtually any topic, fact or fiction. For research purposes, you
will probably be looking for books that synthesize information
on a single topic.
The Cuesta library organizes
and shelves its books using the Library of Congress Classification system. The circulating collection is found on shelves called "bookstacks." The Reference books are shelved separately.
In addition, about 13,000 full text books are available online as eBooks through Cuesta's EBSCOhost eBook collection,
and are available from the Library's home page.
