What is a Call Number?


 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.  

All books and videos are shelved together by subject. Each item is given a call number. In our library,

  • Books and videos with call numbers A-N are on the 2nd floor.
  • Books and videos with call numbers P-Z are on the 3rd floor.
  • Reference books are on the 1st floor.
  • Reserve items are on the 1st floor in L 102.
