The Library of Congress Classification system is what most colleges and universities use to organize their books. We use it here at COM Library. All cataloged materials are assigned title, author and Library of Congress subject headings so they can be retrieved in a search of COM's Library Catalog and organized on the library's shelves in a consistent manner. To see an outline of the system, go to the Library of Congress Classification Outline to see the entire system.

We have a page in which you might be interested in our How to Find Books libguide (see link below) that breaks down the call numbers so you can find them on the shelves more easily.
