What is a Call Number?

Most academic libraries - Kaufman Library included - use the Library of Congress Classification System (LCC) to arrange their materials and keep them in order.

LCC assigns a series of numbers and letters to create call numbers for library materials.  Call numbers serve as addresses that can help you locate the items you're looking for on the shelves.  Call numbers are usually applied to the spine or front of a library item.  Each book and DVD has a unique call number.  Want to know how to read and understand call numbers?  Check out this video tutorial: Library of Congress Classification.
