A library classification is a system of knowledge organization by which library resources are arranged and ordered systematically. At UCI Libraries, and many North American academic libraries, books are arranged according to the Library of Congress Classification system. The Visual Arts books are mainly under the "N" call number range, and within that range, there are subcategories, such as print media. You'll find these books on the 4th Floor of Langson Library.

UCI's collection of artists' books dates from the 1960s to the present (400 volumes to date, most of them published after 1990) encompassing nearly all aspects of the genre from "normal" published works to altered, sculptural, painted and unique books. The collection has three major foci: works by and about women; works that explore contemporary American politics; and works produced in Latin American countries. For more information, visit:
