The Hartley Library uses the Library of Congress classification scheme for most subjects. The books are arranged by codes called 'call numbers'. Here are some of the most important call numbers.
|HF||Marketing, HRM, Accounting|
Most of the books with call numbers beginning with H are on level 3 of the Hartley Library.
If a book is 'short loan' it will be in the Course Collection on level 2.
When you find a book on the catalogue, you will see a call number or code that tells you where the item is shelved.
Most call numbers begin with a letter (or letters), that relates to a subject. Numbers placed after the letters represent more specific areas within the broad subject. The last 3 letters are the first letters of the author's surname, e.g.
HF 5410 JON – Marketing
HG 8011 SMI - Insurance
Books are arranged first in alphabetical order of call number, then numerically, e.g. HD 99 comes before HD 100.
The library touch screens and floor plans will show you where items with particular call numbers are stored.
