Other Call Numbers
The MacPháidín Library uses other call numbers for specific collections that are not a part of the main collection. There are two collections that are shelved by other, locally created, call numbers: the picture books in the Curriculum Collection and the music cassettes and CDs.
|Picture Books in the Curriculum Collection|
An example of the type of other call number used in this collection is:
The pic designates this particular item as part of the picture books in the Curriculum Collection. The G in the second line is the first letter of the author's last name. All picture books are grouped by author.
|Music Cassettes and CDs|
An example of the other type of call number used in the collection is:
The first three digits are derived from the publisher of the sound recording - in this particular case MCA represents MCA records. In this collection, all items from particular publishers are shelved together.
