All books in the library are arranged by subject using the Library of Congress classification system for call numbers and subject headings. The call number for criminal justice begins with "HV". The basic breakdown is as follows:

HV6001 - 7220.2 Criminology
HV6035 - 6197 Criminal Anthropology
HV6201 - 6249 Criminal Classes
HV6250 - 6250.4 Victims of Crimes
HV6251 - 6773.55 Crimes and Offenses
HV6774 - 7220.5 Crimes and Criminal Classes
HV7231 - 9960 Criminal Justice Administration
HV7935 - 8025 Administrative and Organizations
HV8081 - 8099 Private Detectives
HV8301 - 9920.7 Penology, Prisons, Corrections
HV9051 - 9230.7 The Juvenile Offender
HV9261 - 9430.7 Reformation and Reclamation of Adult Prisoners
HV9950 - 9960 By Region or Country

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.
