More on call numbers
Call numbers may look random, but librarians follow certain rules when putting the call numbers together. If you understand how the library classifies its books, it will save you time when you are looking for books and help you to discover more books which you otherwise might have missed.
In NTU Libraries, we follow the Library of Congress Classification System (LC for short).
