As in most academic libraries, there is no "fiction section" at CFCC. We catalog works of fiction according to the Library of Congress call number system.
This means that fiction is shelved according to the author's country of origin and time period. Literary criticism and translations are shelved side by side with the original work.
French Literature - PQ 1 to PQ 3999
To look for works of fiction on a certain topic or set in a certain location, combine the topic (typed in General Keyword) with the term "FICTION" (typed in Subject Keyword).
For example, novels featuring shipwrecks can be found by the search below.
As in most academic libraries, there is no "biography section" at CFCC. We catalog biographies according to the Library of Congress call number system.
This means that biographies are shelved with the subject for which the individual is famous. Biographies of chemists will be in the "QD" section with the chemistry books, for example, and biographies of artists will be in in the "N" section with the art books.
The biography of Maria Montessori, a famous early childhood innovator
is found in the "LB" section near other books about teaching young children.
AUTOBIOGRAPHIES (written by the subject of the book) and BIOGRAPHIES (written by someone else) are treated the same in the Library of Congress system.
To look for biographies and autobiographies on a certain topic, combine the topic (typed in General Keyword) with the term "BIOGRAPHY" (typed in Subject Keyword).
Library of Congress sets aside the CT classification for special types of biographical information.
