Finding Books in Ablah Library

Books in Ablah Library are organized by the Library of Congress classification scheme, through which similarly themed books are grouped together. Books on public speaking in general are classified with a PN call number (on the 2nd floor). For example, if you find a relevant book with a call number of PN4121, browse the collection in that area. Chances are, you will find other books that will be equally helpful. We also have many ebooks available, accessible from anywhere.

You can search for books using the SmartSearch box above (or on the library's homepage). After you search, click the boxes Books and eBooks in the "Limit by Source Type" menu on the left.
