Higher Ed Call number ranges

For the past several years, almost all newly published items added to the library’s collection have been in electronic format only. These items are accessible in full text through the library’s intranet catalog. Many old print materials have also been digitized and uploaded to the library’s catalog.

To get a general sense of a subject’s history, however, you may find it useful to browse the library stacks in certain locations to see print copies of older publications (and the occasional newer item that was published both electronically and in print). For publications related to higher education and employment advancement, call number ranges include, but are not limited to:

374 adult education
378 higher education
379 public policy issues in education

Hard copies of mandated reports that were produced only once or as a limited series are shelved by the number of the act that required the report. Hard copies of mandated reports produced regularly with no set end date (for example, state agencies’ annual reports) are shelved in the stacks by subject.

Higher Ed Finding OLR Reports and more in the vertical files: index headings

For OLR Reports and other materials related to the Higher Education and Employment Advancement Committee’s work, index headings include:

Apprenticeship Programs
Education-Adult
Education-Higher
Education-Higher-Finance
Education-Vocational/Technical
Employment
Ex-Convicts-Employment
Job Development
Labor Supply
Medical Research
Occupational Training
Scholarships and Loan Programs
Science and Technology
Sports
University of Connecticut
University of Connecticut-Health Center
Vocational Rehabilitation

The library assigns topical index headings to all OLR Reports and keeps hard copies of the reports organized by these index headings. Reports from 1994 to the present are in the library’s file cabinets (aka the “vertical files”) in the red-tabbed folders, as well as online in full text. Older reports are in two sets of bound volumes (one set for the 1970s, and one for 1980-1993) on the library’s shelves.

The same index headings the library uses for OLR Reports have been used to organize over 600 subject files of materials such as newspaper clippings, court decisions, press releases, pamphlets, and other resources that would be more difficult to locate if they were dispersed throughout the library’s general collection. The subject files are in the blue-tabbed folders in the file cabinets. (Many of the items in these folders have also been digitized by the library, and their electronic versions can be found in the library’s intranet catalog.)
