The Library of Congress classification scheme, used by the WVU Libraries to catalog our materials, has designated the letter P to cover the languages and literatures of the world. As a sub-class, P is used to organize general linguistics materials. You can use this to browse in the Downtown Campus Library bookstacks for materials of interest in broad subject categories and topics.
