United States History: Find Books & Films

Browsing American History

The UW Libraries arranges books by Library of Congress (LC) call numbers. Though history is covered in every discipline (e.g., women's history may be located in the women's studies call numbers while the medical history may be in the medicine call numbers), the major sections for American history are listed below. You can find these U.S. history call numbers in the Reference section on the 1st floor, and in the main stacks on the 3rd floor.
