This is the University of Alabama's main discovery system allowing you to search hundreds of electronic databases, print resources from our catalog, ebooks, videos, news, and more!
The Classic Catalog searches books, journal titles, and e-books within the UA Libraries System. The benefit of searching the Catalog is being able to limit results by library location.
Our Geology is housed in Rogers Library, however due to the interdisciplinary nature of geology, some books can be found in Bruno (GIS & research data) and Gorgas (Social Sciences, Climatology, etc.).
Most subject headings for "classic" geology will fall under QE. Here at UA we use the Library of Congress (LOC) call number system to organize our collection. Below are some subject headings to get you started.
|QE||Geology (General), with subclasses of Mineralogy (351-399), Volcanoes & Earthquakes (521-545), Stratigraphy (640-699), etc.|
|QH||Natural History - Biology|
Other related subject headings (Most located in Gorgas Library)
Geography (Physical Geography in Rogers, GIS in Bruno)
Social Sciences (General)
Includes subdivisions for demography (HB), land use (HD), and transportation (HE)
|J||Political Science (General)|
|E||History of the Americas (US 151-909)|
