Book Call Numbers

How are the books in the library organized?

The Library of Congress (LC) system is used by most college and university libraries to organize books on the library shelves. It is an alpha-numeric system. Each item in the library has a label with letters and numbers (together called a Call Number) which indicates its place on the shelf. The letters indicate a subject area, and the numbers which follow further subdivide the broader topic into more specific categories. 

Below is a chart that shows the LC classification system by subject.
