Find programming books by browsing the library shelves

Programming books can be found on the third floor of the library, grouped by programming language.  The Library of Congress (LC) Classification call number for computer programming is QA76.73 - for books on specific languages, notice the next set of letters and numbers.  Generally speaking, the next letter after QA76.73 corresponds to the first letter of the name of the programming language.  So you can browse the shelves for the language you're interested in by following the call number sequence in alphabetical order.

Programming languages by call number

Here are the call number designations for some common programming languages.  Please note that call numbers are only assigned to the library's print books - they are not assigned to any e-books in our catalog.
