What is a Call Number?

A call number is the "address" of a book in the library.  PC uses Library of Congress Call Numbers, which may be different from systems you've seen in other libraries. The locations all begin with a letter which represents the broad subject of the book, followed by numbers and other letters. Library staff can direct you to the location of the call number,  then you can look for the letter and number on the spine of the book.

example:
