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 geography begins with "G". The basic breakdown is as follows:

G1 – G9980


Geography (General), Atlases, Maps

GA1 – GA1776


Mathematical Geography, Cartography

GB3 – GB5030


Physical Geography

GC1 – GC1581



GE1 – GE350


Environmental Sciences

GF1 – GF900


Human Ecology, Anthropogeography

The numbers that follow these beginning letters relate to the narrower scope of the item, for example: consider the subject headings and specific book call numbers, Geography – History (G80.M38 2005) vs. Agricultural Geography (S453 .C54 1980).

Occasionally, a totally different call number will appear. This means the book is more about the agricultural aspects of geography and higher importance was given to the concept of (S) agriculture when the call letters and numbers were assigned.
