Understanding the Numbers

To locate print materials on the shelves you must use a call number - a combination of letters and numbers - these numbers are printed on lables which are stuck onto the spine of books. You must intrepret this number section by section, for example...

Z713 .H447 2006

Z
The first section is all letters. Read the first letters in alphabetical order:
A, B, BF, C, D... L, LA, LB, LC, M, ML, N, NA ..

713
Read the numbers immediately following the letter(s) as a whole number:
1, 2, 3, 45, 100, 101, 1000, 2000, 3000, 3400, 3485 ...
Occasionally this number will contain a decimal (without any additional letters in mid-number). In this case, read it as it appears

.H447
A decimal should follow, then a combination of letters and numbers. Read the letter alphabetically, then read the number as a decimal:
.H447 = .447
.H52 = .52
Some call numbers have more than one of these lines.

2006
The last part is the year the book was published. Read in chronological order:
1985, 1991, 1992...
