Here's a quick guide on how to read call numbers in our library (and most other academic libraries).
The first line is read in alphabetical order.
Read the second line in numerical order.
The third line is tricky. Read the letter in alphabetical order then the number as a decimal.
Sometimes the fourth line will look like this and you read it exactly like the other line.
When you see a line near the bottom that looks like a year, it is a year! This goes in numerical order.
You could think of a call number like a detailed address in reverse: planet, country, state, city, street, street number. Each line helps you narrow down the book's exact location!
UMass Dartmouth dissertations and thesis are online in our digital archives. If you need one from 2016 or earlier, search the title or author in Primo.
Our library uses the Library of Congress Classification System. If you are browsing our stacks, call numbers beginning with R are for medicine and specifically those under RT are nursing and these are located on our fifth floor. The Library of Congress has a full outline of this classification to better understand what's under each call number within the R's. We also have a good collection of e-books available through Primo.
Here are just a few titles in our collection.
