Books at Spiva Library are filed by the Library of Congress Classification System. To determine the Library of Congress call number of a specific book one must search the Spiva Library Catalog. A Spiva Library catalog search widget is provided below.

Why use Google Books?
Google Books searches the full-text of books. It is great for narrow topics because it lets you search within the text of books--you can see the table of contents, index or a portion of the contents of the book. You can then locate the book in a nearby library.
To access the full-text of ebooks from off-campus you must be a current MSSU student, faculty or staff member with a username and PIN. If you don't know or can't remember your Missouri Southern Username or PIN, please contact the IT Help Desk.
