Finding Books Using Call Numbers

Finding Books:

Books are organized by their CALL NUMBER, which consists of a letter (or letters) followed by a series of numbers. You can locate the books by looking on our bookmarks (found at the reference desk) or the list below.

A through BF: 2nd floor north

BH through HB: 3rd floor north

HC through PN5355: 4th floor south

PN5359 through Z: 4th floor north

About Call Numbers: 

Books at the UIC Library are arranged based on the Library of Congress classification system, which is typical of most university libraries. Call numbers correspond to specific subject areas, which means that you can usually find additional books on your topic by browsing the shelf in a particular call number area.

Checking Out Books:

As an undergraduate, you can check out books for 4 weeks at a time using your UIC  i-Card. You can renew books by logging into My Account on the library home page (you will need to create an account).
