Finding an item's call number:

  • Knowing an item's call number will help you locate where the item is placed in the library.
  • To find the call number for an item in the Library Catalog, click on an item's "Details" button in the results list and the call number will appear in the bottom-left hand side of the item's record.
  • Once you have the item's call number, you can take it to the library and find the item in that location. 
  • Look at the example below to see what the Call Number looks like in the catalog record.

What if I don't see a call number?

  • eBooks or any other type of electronic material may not always have a call number because they are not located physically in the stacks (bookshelves).  Instead you will be directed to the database that hosts the eBook, usually by clicking on a red link that says Web Link, like in the example below.
