Q. How are books organised in UCC library?
We organise books in subject order using the Dewey Decimal System. It is a system that gives books on the same subject the same number (the call number). The call number is the number you need to find a book on the shelf.
- Books are organised on the shelves in number order.
- Search for a book on the catalogue to get the call number.
- It is on the spine of the book, followed by the first 4 letters of the author's surname.
- Books with different titles can have the same call number so make sure you get the book you want.
