  • 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 found on book spines. Look for a white label with a bunch of letters and numbers.
  • Call numbers are like a street address for resources. It identifies where on the shelf an item can be located. Call numbers are assigned by librarians and may vary from library to library.
  • For example, all books about dogs will be grouped together.
  • Dewey uses numbers
  • Library of Congress uses letters
  • Call numbers and ISBN numbers are often confused.The call number is on the spine of the book, unique to that library, and is the book’s address.Call numbers include letters, numbers, and periods.The ISBN is the book standard number. Each edition of a book has a book assigned. This is handy if you want to make sure you are purchasing the correct textbook on Amazon! It is that edition of the book’s barcode, and includes only numbers. (occasionally there is an x at the end)Show examples.
  • The Stacks is where the books are shelved
  • Go to the website to show how to locate the online catalog.Do a search on a topic (Facebook is what I usually use). Point out how to click books on the left-hand side after the searchClick advanced search at the top of the screen (just under the main search box)Point out where to search by author, title, and keyword.Point out the limiters at the bottom (dates, format, a particular harrison college campus LRC)
  • Begin with the 2 letters at the beginning then move down to the rest of the numbered call number.(have them do this in the same groups)BD 430.A3 2008; BF 1078.F72 2010; HD 4918.E375 2008; HF 5383.H49 2005; RT 55.N44 2011; RT 55.T4875 2009
