Guide to Library Call Numbers

Library of Congress Classification System

Most items in the JMU Libraries are cataloged according to the Library of Congress (LC)
classification system, using a combination of numbers and letters in a set order. The letters at the
beginning of each call number indicate subject area. The main categories in LC are:


A General Works M Music & Books on Music
B Philosophy, Psychology, Religion N Fine Arts
C Auxiliary Sciences of History P Language & Literature
D History: General & Old World Q* Science
E History: America R* Medicine
F United States Local History S* Agriculture
G Geography, Anthropology, Recreation T* Technology
H Social Sciences U Military Science
J Political Science V Naval Science
L Education Z Library Science
K Law

*These call numbers are found at Rose Library.


Almost all items in JMU Libraries are shelved according to the Library of Congress system,
which means that their call number should be read in this format:
