TCU Air Force ROTC & Air University Press Leadership Resources: Searching for Air University Press Publications

Searching for Air University Press Publications

Air University Press logo

Air University Press has published hundreds of books that cover a wide variety of topics many of which have been made available to the public for free through the Federal Depository Library Program.

The following are suggestions on how to find what we have available in our library.


Searching by SuDoc Stem

Books in our Main collection use the Library of Congress call number system, but Government Documents use SuDoc numbers which are a classification system created by the Superintendent of Documents.  What makes this system unique and user friendly is that the preceding letter(s) of the SuDoc number represent the Department or Agency that created the document.  For further information on understanding the basics of the SuDoc Classification System please go to the Research Guide, Core Documents of Our Democracy.

It's easy to search for Air University Press publications in our Government Documents collection by SuDoc number.  All Air University Press publications use the SuDoc stem D 301.26/6.  To search for this stem in our catalog go to the Library's home page, select Library Catalog and More Catalog Search Options.
