Relevant Class Numbers

Class numbers are used to shelve library items in numerical order. Each number represents a subject. All the books on the same subject should be found together. Normally we will have added the first three letters of the surname of author to the class number, to make them easier to find.

Just follow the signage until you reach the number you require, and then follow the numbers on the spines of the books until you find the book you want.
