Just as your home address helps people find where you live, a call number indicates where materials in Milne Library are located. It's a code that will give you clues as to which floor, area, and shelf the book, CD, DVD, or other item will be found. Milne uses the Library of Congress Classification System to assign call numbers. In this system, the first two or three lines of a call number identify the subject of a book or other item.
