How to Read a Call Number

For a book with the call number PS3537 T3234 G8 1986b:

The first set of numbers and letters are read alphabetically then numerically:

  • you’ll look for PS after PR

  • then 3537 in numerical order within the PSs

The next set of letters is again alphabetical but the numbers are in decimal order:

  • look for the Ts

  • then 3234 will come after 31 but before 3
