Call Numbers:

Library of Congress call numbers begin with letters of the alphabet. The letter or combination of letters identify the subject of the work. Each letter or group of letters is in turn followed by more combinations of letters and numbers which serve to further break down the broad subject in very narrow subject areas.

The call number also functions as an address, giving an exact location for each item in the library. You can find the call number for a title owned by the library by searching the online library catalog.
