What is a call number?
Call numbers are the group of numbers usually located on the spine of a book that serve as the "address" of the book. Each book in our library has a distinctive call number. Mount Holyoke uses the Library of Congress Classification system, which is different from the Dewey Decimal Classification that is used in public and K-12 libraries.
Example of call number order:
N66 .B634 1999
NA 9 .A34 2005
NA 20 .G4 2001
NA 100 .G47 2008
