Woah, what's that crazy long number
underneath my book title?
That's a call number. It's how you find
where the book lives on the shelves in
the library!

Make sure you see in which library your
book lives (we have NINE on campus!)
and then either text yourself or write
down that whole, big long number.

If your book's call number is SK325.P5
P76 1990, and you see it's a Library
West General Collection book, go to
Library West and figure out where
the S section starts.

Once you're in the S's, look for SK.
Then look for SK300, and find SK325.
Then follow along until you see
SK325.P... and so on and so forth!
