Understanding Call Numbers
TR B The Call Number on the spine of the book tells you where to find the book on the shelves. Library of Congress Call Numbers
Academic Libraries usually use the Library of Congress Classification System, not the Dewey Decimal system. TR The first line is shelved in alphabetical order. On the library shelves you’d find books with the call number HA shelved before HB, TR would be before TS, etc The second line is a real number. You’d find 1 before 2, and before 178.9, etc...
TR B35 This line is both alphabetical and decimal. A number with.A-- would be found on the shelf before a number with.B--, B before C, etc…. But don’t forget this is a decimal number, so.B35 would be found on the shelf after.B214 and before.B This number is usually the date of the publication of the book would be found on the shelf before 1968, 1968 before 1969, etc...
