All books in the library are arranged by subject using the Library of Congress classification system for call numbers and subject headings. The main call numbers for history begin with “D, E, & F”. The basic breakdown is as follows:
CB3 – CB482
History of Civilization
CT21 – CT9999
D1 – DT2009
DA1 – DA995
DC1 – DC947
DD1 – DD905
DK1 – DK949.5
DS1 – DS937
DT1 – DT3415
E151 – E889
F406 – F420
F1001 – F1145.2
F1201 – F3799
The numbers that follow these beginning letters relate to the narrower scope of the item, for example: the call numbers F406-420 represent books about history in Arkansas, and the call numbers F856-870 are for books about history in California. An example of a specific call number for a book entitled From Slavery to Uncertain Freedom : the Freedmen’s Bureau in Arkansas, 1865-1869 is F411 .F445 1996.
Occasionally a totally different call number will appear. This means the item is about more than history and higher importance was given to the other subject when the call number was assigned.
