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


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:
