- 1. Let’s Talk About Books!
- 2. For example, a COVER protects a book and delivers important information to you, the reader.
- 3. Like the TITLE of the book.
- 4. Like the TITLE of the book. And the name of the AUTHOR and ILLUSTRATOR.
- 5. You know that a book’s SPINE is also important because it holds the book together.
- 6. And it gives you, the reader, important information!
- 7. Like the TITLE of the book!
- 8. The name of the AUTHOR!
- 9. And if it’s a library book, the SPINE will also display the book’s CALL NUMBER!
- 10. A CALL NUMBER is the address of the book. It tells you exactly where the book lives on the shelf!
- 11. Just like your address tells someone exactly where you live on your street. = 235
- 12. Knowing how to read a book’s CALL NUMBER is important because FICTION BOOKS and NON-FICTION BOOKS have different kinds of CALL NUMBERS!
- 13. And FICTION BOOKS and NON-FICTION BOOKS live in different parts of our library! 4 DIFFERENT FICTION SECTIONS Book Cases All Along the Walls Freestanding Book Cases in the Middle of the Room
- 14. The first part of a book’s CALL NUMBER tells you if the book is a FICTION book, or if it lives in the NON- FICTION section of the library. DIA DIADIA E 328.5 F
- 15. DIA DIA DIA E 328.5 F If the CALL NUMBER starts with a LETTER, then the book lives in one of our FICTION sections. EASY FICTION BOOK (E = EASY) FICTION BOOK (F= FICTION FOR OLDER STUDENTS)
- 16. E DIA F DIA 328.5 DIA If the CALL NUMBER starts with a NUMBER, then the book lives in the NON-FICTION section. NON- FICTION BOOK 328.5
- 17. F DIA E DIA 328.5 DIA Now you know, just from looking at the FIRST PART of the CALL NUMBER what general area of the library the book lives in. NON-FICTION SECTION EASY FICTION SECTION FICTION SECTION FE 328.5
- 18. The second part of a CALL NUMBER usually tells you the FIRST 3 LETTERS of the AUTHOR’S last name. E DIA F DIA 328.5 DIADIA DIA DIA
- 19. In this example, all three of these CALL NUMBERS show that the Author’s Last Name starts with the letters “DIA.” E DIA F DIA 328.5 DIADIA DIA DIA
- 20. But two are FICTION BOOKS… (Rememer, we know this because the CALL NUMBER starts with a letter!) E DIA F DIA 328.5 DIA E F
- 21. And one is a NON-FICTION book. (The CALL NUMBER starts with a number!) E DIA F DIA 328.5 DIA 328.5
- 22. Why are the LAST 3 LETTERS of The AUTHOR’S LAST NAME important? E DIA F DIA 328.5 DIA DIA DIA DIA
- 23. FICTION BOOKS are filed on the shelves ALPHABETICALLY by the Author’s Last name. F DIADIA F DAP F DE M F DIM F DIA F DEA F DAS F DER F DIM
- 24. NON-FICTION BOOKS are filed NUMBERICALLY FIRST by their Dewey Decimal number. 328.5 DIA 328.5 This book will be in the 300’s area of the NON-FICTION SECTION, numerically filed from the smallest number to the greatest number. 327.8 328 328.2 328.5 328.5 328.5 329
- 25. 328.5 DIA Non-fiction books are further organized ALPHABETICALLY by The AUTHOR’s LAST NAME. 328.5 DIA 328.5 DUP 328.5 FRI 329 AME
- 26. You can find ANY book in the library by using its CALL NUMBER.
- 27. If you don’t know a book’s CALL NUMBER, you can find it by looking the book up on the Library’s computers. Glenoaks Elementary School Home Catalog Glenoaks Elementary
- 28. Say you want to read a book about Bigfoot. You’re not sure where such a book would be, or even if a book on Bigfoot would be a FICTION or a NON- FICTION BOOK.
- 29. You can use the computer to find the book. Type the book’s SUBJECT into the computer’s search box and click the SUBJECT button. Bigfoot Glenoaks Elementary
- 30. Titles 1 – 12 out of 12 The computer will show you if our library has any books on Bigfoot.
- 31. The CALL NUMBER – or the book’s address– for each book is located under the book’s TITLE. Titles 1 – 12 out of 12
- 32. These books are all NON- FICTION books because the CALL NUMBER starts with a number and NOT a letter. Titles 1 – 12 out of 12
- 33. We now know that all of these books will be located somewhere in the NON- FICTION section of the library. Titles 1 – 12 out of 12
- 34. Let’s look for this book: Bigfoot and Adaptation.
- 35. The first thing you need to do is write the CALL NUMBER down on a slip of paper. The CALL NUMBER is 001.944 COL. Notice that the “COL” stands for the first three letters of author Terry Collins’ last name.
- 36. REMEMBER: NON-FICTON books are filed NUMBERICALLY first, then ALPHABETICALLY by the Author’s last name. So we first need to find where the NON-FICTION books are located with call numbers less than 100. Bigfoot and Adaptation has a very small CALL NUMBER of 1.944
- 37. Look at the street signs on the ends of the NON-FICTION bookcases. The numbers on the signs give you an idea of the range of Dewey Decimal numbers on that street.
- 38. Notice that the numbers on the sign increase as you move toward the door.
- 39. You should be able to figure out what aisle might have the CALL NUMBER you are looking for by using these signs.
- 40. The book you want to find, Bigfoot and Adaptation, had the following CALL NUMBER: 001.944 COL
- 41. It will be somewhere in this bookcase... 001.944 COL At the beginning of the NON-FICTION SECTION because this bookcase has books with a CALL NUMBER as high as 092.
- 42. Use the big number signs and shelf labels to help find the right Dewey Decimal area. So now we know where to look for the book Bigfoot and Adaptation.
- 43. Once you find the right section, you can use the second part of the book’s CALL NUMBER. The second part of this book’s CALL NUMBER is “COL.” COL = COLLINS
- 44. REMEMBER: Non-fiction books are filed NUMERICALLY from least to greatest number, and then ALPHABETICALLY if they have the same CALL NUMBER.
- 45. There are a couple of different books with the CALL NUMBER 001.944
- 46. You want the one whose CALL NUMBER is 001.944 COL
- 47. Look Carefully! Sometimes books aren’t put back in the right spot! NOT SHELVED PROPERLY!!!!!
- 48. Here it is! You found Bigfoot and Adaptation by doing a subject search on the computer and using the book’s CALL NUMBER!
- 49. There are other ways to search for a book in the library by using the computers. You can search for a book by the author’s name, or use the book’s title or even just a keyword.
- 50. The end result with be the same. The computer will show you books that match your search term and you will use the CALL NUMBER to find it.
- 51. CALL NUMBERS are important! So please make sure that when you put a book back on the shelf, the SPINE of the book is facing you!
- 52. So the CALL NUMBERS are facing out.
- 53. Now you know a little bit about books and their CALL NUMBERS. See if you can find a book today using a book’s CALL NUMBER.
- 54. THE END
