Finding a book
Computer workstations are conveniently located throughout the library where users can search the OPAC database to find materials.
Every book in the library is given a unique call number to serve as an address for locating the book on the shelf. The call number itself is composed of two parts: Dewey Decimal Classification, a cataloguing system to make items easier to find on its shelves, and the Cutter number or book number.
The Dewey system has ten main classes, which are listed below:
Each of the above classes each have ten divisions. These divisions are further divided--and then further divided. Each division becomes more specific. The more numbers, the more specific the subject. In this way, the Dewey classification system progresses from the general to the specific.
The cutter number for a book usually consists of the first letter of the author's last name and a series of numbers. A work mark or work letter is used to distinguish the various works of a single author. The work mark is a lower case letter that is usually the first letter of the title of the book
