Finding Studs in Old House

I am new to carpentry and want to put up your basic free standing shelves with standards and brackets, but don't know where the studs in the wall are. How can I find them without just drilling in a lot of different places? The house was built in 1916.
Thanks for any help.

They should be on 24" or 16" centers.
