Library of Congress Call Numbers

Call numbers group books about similar subjects together to facilitate browsing. If you find one book that closes matches a topic, you will likely find similar books nearby.

  • The first letters of an LC call number indicate which broad subject area your book is in.

Visit the Library of Congress website for specific call number subclasses. Ask a librarian for help if you need to find a specific type of book.
