Finding Books

To find a book, write down the title and the call number, e.g. BL48.H368 2003

To find this call number, break it down.

Look first for the BL section.

Books are arranged alphabetically from call number A toward the wall farthest from the classrooms to call number Z closest to the classrooms.

Then look for the number; pay attention if you have tens vs. hundreds vs. thousands. This number is 48.

As you look, remember:

Books are arranged left to right on the shelves, and the numbers go from top to bottom

Once you find 48, look at the next part: H368. Ds come alphabetically after A, B,...and G.

Hopefully, you now see your book.
