What is a Call Number?

Call numbers are a method to keep books in order. We use the Library of Congress (LC) Classification system for most of our books and periodicals, an alphanumeric system which groups books by subject categories.

  • The third line often represents the author’s last name
  • The last line represents the date of publication.
