All books in the library are arranged by subject using the Library of Congress classification system for call numbers and subject headings. The broad call number for Social Sciences, which includes business and management, is H. Some representative call number ranges for management are listed below.:

HD 28-70   -   Management. Industrial Management
HD59   -   Public Relations
HD2709   -   Corporations
HD5106   -   Hours of labor
HF1   -   Commerce
HF5387   -   Business Ethics
HF5546   -   Office Management
HF5549   -   Personnel Management-employment management
HF5735   -   Business records management
HG1709   -   Data Processing
HG4000   -   Finance Management
HG8059   -   Risk Management

The numbers that follow these beginning letters relate to the narrower scope of the item, for example: Management (HD28-70) vs.Management basics for information professionals (Z678 .E9 2013).

Occasionally a totally different call number will appear. This means the item is about more than management and higher importance was given to the other subject when the call number was assigned.  For example, books on library management  has a call number of Z678, because it has to do more with management for information professionals, rather than the ones listed above.


**You can use the call numbers to browse the shelf for similar materials.**  Circulating books are labeled “General Collection” in the online catalog and are located on the third, fourth, and fifth floors of the library.  If these books are checked out, you may place a recall or hold at the Service Desk.  Click on the title of any book to see its full record in our online catalog.
