  • There are two types of classification systems that libraries use to organize materials on the shelf: Dewey Decimal Classification SystemUsed by most public libraries and some colleges Library of Congress Classification SystemUsed by most University and colleges (Harrison College uses this system)
  • Call numbers are like a street address for resources. It identifies where on the shelf an item can be located.
  • For example, all books about dogs will be grouped together.
  • Refer to pages 77 & 78 of your text for charts that break down the subject areas.
  • Go to the website to show how to locate the online catalog.Show how to search by author/title/keyword/etc…
  • When you read the numbers after the decimal point, do not read it as a whole number. Look at each number one at a time to see what comes first
  • Begin with the 2 letters at the beginning then move down to the rest of the numbered call number.
  • The OPAC can be searched for books, e-books, DVDs, CDRoms, and more.
  • When searching the online catalog, you can search by the following “fields”
  • Everyone with brown hair please stand up.Everyone with brown hair AND blue eyes please stand up.Everyone with brown hair AND blue eyes but NOT wearing sandals please stand up.Everyone with brown hair OR blonde hair please stand up.
