Finding books using the library search
How to find a book in the library
Books are grouped by subject. A call number tells you the book's location.
Read the call number in this order. For example, the book Power and Society has the call number JC251 .L3
a. Find the JC area using this chart.
b. Find the range with 251.
The label on the side of the shelves might say JC200-JC300.
The books on these shelves should be on similar topics.
c. On those shelves, look for the 251 section and then L3.
It should be surrounded by books written by the same author.
