Call Numbers in the Minuteman Catalog



In the Minuteman Catalog, when you click on a link for a book, call numbers are listed horizontally, not vertically. They are listed under the column titled "Call No."

Whether vertically or horizontally arranged, the third and fourth lines are always treated as decmial numbers. For example

  • RD
  • 32.2
  • .A45                      will appear as            RD32.3 .A45 2012
  • 2012
