If you are searching for a book through the main search bar on the Library's homepage, you will see a call number included for each print book in your search results.
Here is an example of a call number: PR6062 .I89 H69 2012
On the spine of the book, it will look like this:
All of the books are arranged on the shelves alphabetically. So this book is shelved after the A's, B's, etc. and after the PA's, PB's, etc, until you get to PR.
Then start the PR 1's, 2's, etc. until you get to number 6062. If there are a lot of PR 6062's, then we look at the third line down (.N89) and start again. It's easy to get confused, so please visit the Front Desk for help.
