How to Read a Call Number

Books at HSU are organized by the Library of Congress Classification System. This means that the books are grouped by broad subjects alphabetically and numerically within a subject. This system helps you locate books on those topics by keeping them all together. Each book has it's own call number to help you find it in the broader subject and can also be given a more specific topic within the broad subject. HERE'S AN EXAMPLE Title: The Encyclopedia of Arthurian Literature. Call Number: DA 152.5 A7 C64 1992.  This book has a subject of History with a sub-class of Great Britain (DA) and second sub-class of Early and medieval to 1485 (152.5). HOW TO READ A CALL NUMBER The first letters represent the broad subject (DA), The first set of numbers identify a more specific topic of a subject (152.5) The second set of letter/number combinations represents the author or the title of the book (A7 C64) and the last number is the year published (1992)
