How to read call numbers

Book catalog record

This is a sample record for a book in the library catalog. Whenever you go to the book shelves to get a book, always notice the location of the book (5th floor), its call number (HE9713 .L563 2004), and its status (NOT CHECKD OUT). A status of "NOT CHECKD OUT" means the book has not been checked out, or borrowed, by another student and it should be on the shelf. If a book has been checked out, the status box will have a due date, such as DUE 02-19-11.
