A call number, like an address, tells where the item is located in the library. The Mason Libraries uses the Library of Congress (LC) Call Number system to organize materials on the same topic together. Each item begins with capital letter(s) followed by numbers. Use the item’s location and call number to find the title on the shelf.
For assistance with finding books in the Fenwick Library visit the information desk on the first floor, call 703-993-2240, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
