Search the library's catalog, to find books on your topic.
Social welfare & policy books usually have a call number that starts with the letters HV, which is located on the 4th floor of the library.
However, social welfare policy topics are often cross-disciplinary, so you may find books in other call number ranges.
For example, books focusing on housing policies will usually have a call number that starts with the letters HD (located on the 4th floor) and books discussing education policies usually have a call number that starts with the letters LB (4th floor).
Please note that many policy books in the library's catalog are electronic books and can be viewed using a browser. If the book is an "Electronic Resource," look for the URL or link. If you are off campus, you may be prompted to type in your Baruch username and password.
