Q. What is the call number?
The call number or classification number is the number you need to find a book on the shelf.
- Books are organised on the shelves in call number order.
- When you search for a book on the catalogue, it gives you the call number.
- It is on the spine of the book, followed by the first 4 letters of the author's surname.
- Books with the same call number are about the same subject.
- Books with different titles can have the same call number so make sure you get the book you want.
