  4. The item call number will tell you where to look on the shelves.
  5. You need the whole call number e.g. 152.334 A244 or 152.334 ZEL.
    The call number is based on the Dewey Decimal Classification which groups items by subject so you can browse the shelves for other items relevant to your subject.
  6. Check your library floorplan to locate the item.
