Transcript of How to Find Your Next Great Read

The books' spine tells us important information:

*The books' call number
for example: F DIC or E WIL or 811 SIL

*A call number is a unique code for books displayed in the library catalog (Destiny) and on the spine of books which identify each book and give it a location on the library shelves.
***Think of it like an address for each book. You can look up addresses on a map to find where someone lives, call numbers do the same for books.

How to Find Your Next Great Read
Spine - The part of the binding on a book between the front and back covers that conceals and protects the binding edge of the sections, the only part of the cover visible when the volume is placed upright alongside others on the shelf.

Spine label - A small typed or printed label affixed to the lower spine of a book or other bibliographic item at the time it is processed, displaying its location symbol and call number, for use in reshelving and to assist the user in retrieving the item from the shelf once the call number has been found in the library catalog.

Spine out - Books displayed on a shelf with their spines facing the front, usually one alongside the other with a bookend at the end of the row to keep them upright--the shelving method used in the stacks of most libraries because it allows the spine title and call number on each volume to be seen at a glance.

Shelf Organization
Books are placed on the shelves alphabetically by the call number.
F RIC would come before F ROW
E WIL would come after E WAL
Signs on the ends or tops of shelves tell you what letters are on each self.
The sign F A-J tells you that the shelf has books with authors' last names beginning with the letters A-J
Finding Call Numbers on Computer
Remember, you can find any book in the library on the library OPAC which is the online catalog Destiny.
When you find a book you want, just look for the call number. Remember, the call number is the address to where the book lives in the library.
***Call Number
So Remember. . .
The spines of books give us a lot of information.
The call number is located on the spine label of each book.
1. If you want to know where a book "lives" in the library, first look at the top letter of the call number.
This number tells you in what area of the library the book lives (fiction, everybody, nonfiction. . .)
2. Next, look at the bottom three letters of the call number.
These letters tell you what shelf and where on the shelf a book lives.
Books are placed alphabetically by call number of shelves.
