This is an updated, electronic version of a print pathfinder prepared by the NEIU business librarian for the College of Education's HRD 400 class.

Locating Books on HRD

The Library purchases books in both print and electronic formats.

Print books are located in the physical library building and can be found in either the reference section on the Library's first floor or in the book stacks that are located on all floors of the Library. Most HRD books have a call number that begins with HF5549 and can be found in the stacks on the third floor.

Electronic books (eBooks) are located online via the Library's website. They can be found by doing a title search in the NEIU Library Catalog and limiting the search results to eBooks.


The following books dealing with human resource development can be found in the book stacks that are on the third floor of the Library. Note that books located in the stacks circulate and can be checked out.


The Library has begun to acquire books in electronic format. Such books are commonly referred to as e-books or eBooks.
