How Are Books Organized?

Library of Congress Classification System

  • The Library of Congress classification system organizes books by broad subject area.

  • Each item is assigned a call number, which is like the book's address.

  • Each call number begins with a letter or multiple letters, followed by numbers and additional combinations

  • Sample Call Number:   HQ784.V53 A53 2007

  • The beginning letters of a call number represent a broad subject area (ie HQ784 is "child development")
