Most fiction, poetry and creative non-fiction books in English, as well as literary criticism and literary journals and periodicals can be found in the Doheny Memorial Library. In addition, the Leavey Library (open 24/7) has a small collection of books in all areas.
The call number range PS corresponds to the Subject range "American Literature"; the call number range PR corresponds to British and other literatures in English. In the Doheny Library, the PR and PS sections are on the second level of stacks, behind the Circulation desk.
