Handbooks for Syntax

Finding Books

Use the library catalog to search for print books and ebooks from Reed's collection. You can also search the print holdings of other local libraries (via Summit).

Reed College used the Library of Congress (LC) Classification system to arrange the books in the stacks. Though books on syntax may be shelved in other locations, most books will be found in the LC call number range P291 - P298 in the Library Lower Level 1 East Stacks.
