How to Find Books in the Library

University libraries organize their books by subject on the library shelves. They use an organization system called Library of Congress (LC)  Classification.  

When you find books through a Library Search, you'll notice that some are electronic (available fully online), while others are located in the library.  Books that are in the library will have a call number, which identifies the exact place you'll find it on the shelves. 

Watch this short tutorial to understand how to find a book using its call number.
