When you go to the catalog and find a specific call number (like 641.5 Chi), here’s how you find it:

  1. Find the three digit number to the left of the decimal (like 641).  The numbers are all in order from 001 to 999, so this part will be easy. If it is a general book, it will be on the 3rd floor. Any call numbers with an R before the number is reference and located on the second floor.
  2. Once you’re in the 641s, look at the numbers to the right of the decimal (also in order – 641.1, 641.2, etc.) until you find what you’re looking for.
  3. Once you’ve found the right number area, start looking for the letters, which are also filed alphabetically.
If you cannot find the book, please ask a librarian for assistance.
