Our Library uses the Library of Congress classification for the Call #.
Call # is printed on the spine or front page of the library item.
Library items are arranged in ascending order of the Call # in the respective sections.
Purpose of the Call #:
- To enable users to easily locate the item on shelf
- To group library items by subject
|Examples of ascending order|

|HD28 ADV||comes before the below because '0' (i.e. 28 = 28.0) comes before '1'|
|HD28.15 KEL||comes before the below because '1' comes before '6'|
|HD28.6 ETM 1993||-|
