What does "stacks" mean?


'Stacks' are the open shelves of library books.  If the catalogue says a book is in the stacks, then it's on a shelf in the branch indicated in the catalogue. At Scott Library stacks are located on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th floors.  All books are placed on the shelf in call number order.
