The Library of Congress Classification System - California Western
The Library of Congress Classification System

The Library of Congress Classification scheme is an alpha-numeric system and is used throughout our collection.

  • The first line of the call number represents the general subject of the book.
    KF -- Law of the United States

  • The second line is a number defining the more specific subject area.
    8732 -- Court administration and management

  • The third line contains the first letter of the author's last name and the designated author's number (a decimal).
    .F7 -- Author number for Ernest C. Friesen

Books are shelved in the order of their call numbers with the exception of the Periodicals Collection which is arranged alphabetically by title.

  • In some instances the Library owns two or more copies of a title, and the separate copies may be housed in different places.

  • Ranges of call numbers are located in various floors throughout the building.

  • Locations are identified in the on-line catalog.

Please consult with a Library staff member if you have difficulty locating the material you wish to see.
