The numbers that follow the beginning letters relate to the narrower scope of the subject, for example: HV8081-8099 represents books about private detectives within the general subject area of criminal justice. An example of a specific call number for a book entitled Quantitative Studies in Criminology is HV6018. Q36.
Occasionally a totally different call number will appear. This means the item is about more than criminal justice and higher importance was given to the other subject when the call number was assigned.
