The Thompson Library is organized by the Library of Congress Classification system. LOC organizes history into the D, E, and F sections and then subdivided based on region of the world. We recognize that the system is inherently Western and colonial in make up, so some areas, authors, or languages are misrepresented or underrepresented.
D-DZ World History and the History of Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, etc.
E-F History of the Americas
