The philosophy collection supports the teaching, research, and service activities of the entire university community. Its primary audience is the faculty and students of the Department of Philosophy in the College of Arts & Sciences. Its primary focus is support for the undergraduate and graduate curricula for philosophy. Research needs of faculty and students are supplemented through Interlibrary Loan. Although the collection also benefits other citizens of the state of Nebraska, materials are not purchased with them in mind. While the collection focuses on works classified in Library of Congress call numbers B, BC-BD, BH, and BJ, research support is also provided by other areas of the general library collection, especially in BL51 (philosophy of religion), H (social sciences), J (political science), K (philosophy of law), Q (philosophy of science), QA (philosophy of mathematics), and R (philosophy of medicine/medical ethics).
