Call Numbers: Finding Books on the Shelf

Once you have found a book you'd like to take a closer look at, it's time to find it on the shelf. Before you head up to the shelves, make sure that you have the call number. A call number is a book's address, and every item in the Library has one. Without a call number, you won't be able to find the book you want.

To find an item by call number, use the silver signs at the top of each bookshelf to navigate to the right row. Then look closely at the spines of the books to find the section that contains your books.

If you get lost or can't find your book, ask a librarian or library staff member for help!
