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)


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.


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