The CSM library uses Call Numbers to organize books on the shelves.

Call Numbers are a book's shelf address. The combination of letters and numbers tells you where to find it in the library.

When you look up a book on the CSM library web site, you'll find the Call Number on the book info page. Write down this number and match it up with label on the book on the shelf. For example, the Call Number for the book Walden by Henry David Thoreau is PS 3048 .A1 1942.
