What is LC Classification?
LC Classification stands for Library of Congress Classification, which is the primary classification system used in academic libraries because it groups materials by subject. Each item in the collection is assigned a call number that consists of letters and numbers to help locate each item on the shelf.
Where are call numbers located?
When using ODTÜ Library's Online Catalog, a call number accompanies the record of an item. In the catalog, the call number appears on one line. For example;
Physics : the first science / Peter Lindenfeld and Suzanne White Brahmia. Lindenfeld, Peter.
The same corresponding call number found on the spine of a book or item, letting you know its location on the shelf.
