To find a book, you need to know the call the number.
Basically, a call number is the location, or shelf address, for a book in the library.
Call numbers are part of classification systems that libraries use to organize books on the shelves. We use the Library of Congress Classification (LC) system. To see how books are shelved, take a look at the example on the right.
Each row of shelves has a sign on the end stating what call numbers are located in that row.
Using the example at the top of this page, we know that the book Pharmacy Pioneers: The First 150 Years of St. Louis College of Pharmacy is located in the General Collection and the call number is RS111 .M4 P35 2018.
Looking at the call numbers on the shelf signs, we know that we can find the book Pharmacy Pioneers in the RS 100- RS 122' row.
For help stop by the Service Desk.
All items should be brought to the Library Service Desk for checkout.
Books checked out through Interlibrary Loan, can only be renewed by emailing Kristina.Coley@stlcop.edu.
All items must be returned to the staff at the Service Desk. Materials left at the Service Desk after closing remain the responsibility of the patron and will be considered late the following day upon check-in.
