Books in archaeology are found at the Library of humanities with books on history. Most books are classified in two major subdivisions: The ancient world until 500 AD, numbers 930-939. More recent history has the numbers 940-949. Within these two groups, books are classified according to geographical region. Relevant literature is also found with Art history, no. 732-733 and religious studies, no. 290-299. Technical literature is frequently found at the Library of science.
