- The call number is the address of a book; it tells you where the book will be found on the shelf.
- The letters at the beginning of a call number indicate the subject and are arranged alphabetically (e.g. HT before PR, D before DT). The first numbers are arranged numerically (e.g. PS 1200 before PS 2000). The next number is arranged as a decimal, so QA 234.57 will be found before QA 234.8.
- To find a book, ask a librarian for help at the reference desk, or search for the book, and its location and call number before finding it on the shelf.
- If a book is not where you think it should be on the shelf, ask a librarian--the book may be located in course reserves or elsewhere.
