To find books in the library:
MTC Library shelves books according to the Library of Congress (LCC) classification system. The LCC Call Number from OneSearch designates a location in the library's bookshelves (stacks) where you can find the referenced item.
The LCC arranges materials by subjects. The first sections of the call number represent the subject of the book. The letter-and-decimal section of the call number often represents the author's last name. The last section of a call number is often the date of publication.
Book's title: Becoming a climate scientist.
Author: Dickman, Kyle
Call number: QC981.2 .D533 2021
Because books are classified by subject, you can often find several helpful books on the same shelf, or nearby. The example shows books within the LC Classification QC851-999 all about meteorology and climatology.
Further details about the LCC classification system is available from the Library of Congress.
