Library jargon explained: a resource at Swansea University Library and Information Services. Good that they have provided this? Bad that we need it?
Call number – The call number, the number placed on the spine of a book, is a code which provides information about the subject of the book and its location in the library. Books are arranged by subject so that you can find other similar books nearby. Our finding, borrowing and reserving page has more information. In the Swansea University libraries we use Library of Congress classification. [Swansea University – Glossary A – L]
