Q. What is a call number and how do I read it?


The Northeast State Library uses the Library of Congress Classification system. Each book is given a call number to place it on the shelves. The call number is basically an address for an item on a shelf in the library.

Use the links below for online tutorials created by other colleges that you can access online to help you understand the system.
