Finding Books and Videos: Find Your Item

Learn how to find books, videos and more in the ACC library.

Call Numbers

Books, DVDs

To find an item on the shelf, you need it's call number. This is usually found on a label on the spine of the item or the lower left of the front cover. Notice the location of the item you looked up to make sure it is at your library. 

This is the address of each individual item in the library collection. It is similar to the address of a house on a street. Each house has a specific address; each item has its own address too.

ACC uses the Library of Congress Classification System (and/or the National Library of Medicine system at EVC). The items are shelved alphabetically according to the first letters of the call number and then numerically.

 

Example:
