Call Number Browse searches will place you in the call number browsing index at the nearest match to the number you have entered. From there you can browse forward or back through the call numbers and select an individual title by clicking on the title or record number. A Call Number search locates an item by a unique identification number, which reflects the item's first subject heading, and indicates the location on the shelf where the item can be found.
The most often used call number type is Library of Congress (LC). You can use a Call Number Browse or a Call Number Exact search for LC call numbers.
Use a Call Number Exact search for the following:
- Dewey Decimal call numbers.
- Local call number systems (such as that used by the Avery Library).
- Superintendent of Documents (SuDoc) numbers used for U.S. government documents.
- Microform call numbers.
