LC Classification

When looking for books in the F. D. Bluford Library it is good to remember that we use the Library of Congress (LC) Classification System. Call numbers in the LC Classification System use a mix of letters and numbers but always start with one, two, or three letters.

Resources on technical writing can be found in the Reference Area and the Stacks.
