Call Numbers

Reading Library Of Congress Call Numbers

Like most university libraries, UWSP Library uses the Library of Congress (LC) Classification for call numbers. As you can see from the example below, an LC call number is a combination of letters and numbers. These letters and numbers have special meanings designed to arrange materials by subjects.

Pay close attention to the location of the book(s) in the library.

Use this guide to help you determine which floor your books are on.
