Where are the graphic novels in the Brooklyn Campus Library?
At the Pratt Institute Libraries we use the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) to organize our collection. That means that all things Graphic Novel related will be in 741.59. The gif above pinpoints the exact aisle in the stacks one would need to go to in order to browse the collection at the Brooklyn Campus Library.
