Finding Bible Commentaries in the Darling Library

Do you know how to find Bible commentaries in the Darling Library?

There are many Bible commentaries available through the Darling Library. Commentary sets can be found in both the REFERENCE collection on the 2nd floor of the Library and in the MAIN circulating collection on the 1st floor. For instance, full sets of the Word Biblical Commentary (Genesis through Revelation) can be found using the call number 220.7.

You can also find commentaries grouped by books of the Bible in the MAIN circulating collection. For instance, all commentaries on the book of Genesis are found using the call number 222.11 and all commentaries on Revelation are found using the call number 228.

The list of call numbers for individual books of the Bible is quite extensive and is included on the graphic below. Click the graphic in order to open it; you can then enlarge it by clicking it a second time.
