Call Numbers in the field of Communication

Communication is a relatively new academic discipline. Therefore no single letter or call number in the Library of Congress Classification System represents all topics in the field of Communication.

Various types and aspects of communication are located throughout Milner Library's collection. The largest collection of general communication titles is on the 6th floor in the P87-96 call number range.

Following is a list of most communication related call number areas. This list may be especially useful for browsing.
