The CCC libraries use the Library of Congress Classification System to organize books and other materials on the shelves. 

Nursing books and media can be found shelved under the classification numbers starting with the letters RT.  In the Auburn campus library, the R's are in the lower level of the library.  Go down the stairs, then right to the second row of bookstacks. In the Fulton campus library, the nursing books are located on the shelving units closest to the computing area of the Learning Commons.
