A call number is a unique code given to each item in the library. The call number will help you find the actual book on the shelves. Call numbers also allow the librarians to shelve items on the same topic close to each other so when you've found your item, check around it for more potential resources.

KPU uses the Library of Congress Classification system which uses a combination of letters and numbers. A typical call number might look like this: H 62 G256 2013. Copy down the entire string for reference when you get to the shelves.
