  • 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.
  • How can you string these words together using Boolean Operators?
  • Remember the Summary information
  • Harrison College has 2 options for ordering resources that the Fort Wayne campus may not have.Students can request books and journal articles from any library throughout the United States. Fill out a form from the LRC website and bring it in to me. Remember to plan ahead!! ILL’s take between 2-4 weeks because of shipping times.
