Everyone knows that the Library features great collections of both fiction and nonfiction books. But did you know that we have a separate section for the larger nonfiction books that won’t fit on our regular shelves?
Much like regular nonfiction, the Oversize books collection covers the entire spectrum of nonfiction topics, from space, to cookbooks, to animals, to art and photography, and more. Anyone looking for books on their favorite nonfiction subjects should take a look at this lesser-known collection!
The Oversize books are located at the end of the nonfiction collection on both the Main Level (000s to 600s) and the Lower Level (700s to 900s).
To browse the Oversize books in the online catalog:
