Call Number Browse / Call Number Search
Most call numbers are Library of Congress (LC) or National Library of Medicine (NLM). There are several other types, including Dewey and Cutter. A Call Number Browse is more reliable for LC, NLM, or Dewey. A Call Number Search can retrieve numbers not available through Browse, such as Cutter call numbers (for example,
AP J83 A162).
Punctuation matters. Include all periods and spaces where applicable.
