Reading Call Numbers


Most academic libraries use the Library of Congress (LC) classification system to organize their materials. Each item is labeled with an LC call number which acts like an address for the book. The call number indicates exactly where the book is located on the library shelves. Find the call number in parentheses immediately after the name of the library when looking at the information about a particular book.
