Staff occasionally tracks shelving so please take your time and please always ask questions. It’s okay to bring books back to the desk to ask!
Some books will end with a year. This will correlate with a publishing date. Not all books will end in a year.

First Line
Decimal Numbers on the First Line
The letters are shelved alphabetically (A before B before C… and A before AB before AD)
And numbers go up (1 before 100 before 1,000)
Oftentimes, there is an addition to the first line which consists of a decimal point followed by a number.
Remember that you should read the call number based on alpha/numerical values.

The second line begins as if there was a decimal point.

The second line follows the same rules as the first (letter value the letter value, then the numeric value).

The second line is treated as if it were a decimal value to the first line.
The Last Line
There is oftentimes yet another letter/number combination that follows. The same alphabetical/numerical rules apply.
