Like most US colleges, the MiraCosta College Library uses the Library of Congress Classification System ("LC") to assign call numbers to books, not the Dewey Decimal system.   Most public libraries, on the other hand, do use the Dewey Decimal system.

To find the Library of Congress call number for a print book, DVD, etc. in the MiraCosta Library, search for the item in our library catalog.

Take a look at the example below for where to find the Library of Congress call number in the catalog.
