Classic Catalog - Call Number Search

Most items in the collection are arranged by Library of Congress call number.* Items in our Government Documents collection are shelved by SuDoc number. ISBN and ISSN stand for International Standard Book (or Serial) number. OCLC numbers are unique identifiers given to records inWorldCat. Other call numbers are used for other collections - for example our Curriculum Collection. More information on call numbers is available.
