The Call Number is a set of letters and numbers found on the spine of the book. It indicates the book's location on the shelf. We use "LC" or the Library of Congress Classification System.
Use SearchAll, our online Library Catalog, to locate books on women in American history.
You can use the SearchAll search box on the Library homepage at library.ncc.edu.
In the SearchAll box, enter your search terms. Ex. Women American History.
The results list will display the books we own on the subject. The Call Number tells you where the book may be found on the shelves. In our Library, Call Numbers that start A-N are on the Second Floor while those starting P-Z are on the Third Floor.
First, locate the range of books with the first two letters of the Call Number then the whole number that follows.
For instance, to locate the book JK1896 .D77 2020, find the range of books that start with the letters JK.
Next, look for the books with the whole number 1896 after the JK.
After that, look for the books with .D77 after RC 454.
Finally, follow the remaining letters and numbers in the Call Number until you have the exact book you want.
Always check on the Location Items to make sure the book is on the shelves and not checked out to another user.
Once you have found the books you need, take them downstairs to the Checkout Desk. With your NCC ID you may borrow the books.
