Finding Books in the Library

To find a book in the library you need the call number, e.g. NB90.Z36 2016

Break it down like this:

NB (this comes after NA, which comes after N)

90 (numbers run from 1-9999, so make sure you pay attention to whether you have a 9, a 90, a 900, or a 9000)

.Z36

2016 (the publication date)

This call number represents a subject. N is art. NB is specifically sculpture. NB90 is Greek sculpture.

Books are arranged left to right on each shelf.

Websites

Museum web sites sometimes have good information about the pieces in their collections as well.
