  5. 5. But we’re here to help!<br />
  6. 6. To find a book, we should click on the BOOKS tab on the library’s home page.<br />
  7. 7. Let’s do a search for:introduction to special education<br />
  8. 8. The second book looks good, so we’re going to write down its Title and Call Number<br />
  9. 9. The Call Number is like a book’s address. We need the whole thing if we want to find the book!<br />http://www.flickr.com/photos/neetsandre/2729830201/<br />
  10. 10. We’ve got our book’s Title and Call Number:<br /><ul><li>Introduction to special education : teaching in an age of opportunity . LC3981 .S56 2001</li></ul> The Call Number can also be broken down into four parts:<br />LC<br />3981<br />.S56<br />2001<br />Which is how it will appear on the book’s spine.<br />
  11. 11. Let’s find our book!We can grab a map from any service desk.<br />
  12. 12. The first part of the Call Number tells us which section the book is in.<br />LC<br />3981<br />.S56<br />2001<br />
  13. 13. So we need to look for the LCsbetween the LBs and the Ms<br />
  14. 14. The second part of the Call Number tells us which row the book is on.<br />LC<br />3981<br />.S56<br />2001<br />
  15. 15. Since the number 3981 is between 3951 and 4091, we know we need to go to the right.<br />
  16. 16. Next, we browse the Call Numbers on the spines of the books to find 3981. Note that the same number can be split between shelves.<br />3979<br />3980<br />3979<br />3980<br />3981<br />3982<br />3981<br />3982<br />3983<br />3983<br />3979<br />
  17. 17. The third part of the Call Number tells us which book it is.<br />LC<br />3981<br />.S56<br />2001<br />
  18. 18. So once we find the 3981s, we look for .S56, and there’s only one!<br />
  19. 19. The last part of the Call Number tells us which edition the book is.<br />LC<br />3981<br />.S56<br />2001<br />
  20. 20. So we found our book!Introduction to special education : teaching in an age of opportunity . LC3981 .S56 2001<br />
