Library Call Numbers (Print Books)

Library call numbers are used for printed books.

A library call number is like an "address" that helps you find the item on the shelves in the Library.

The call number is a group of letters and numbers. Example: HD1691 .B366 2008

The first letter of the call number tells you the floor to go to.

Library call numbers also indicate the subject of the item. At the call number location, look at the books around it.
