Finding Books in the Dean B. Ellis Library
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 sociology begins with "H". The basic breakdown is as follows:
H1 - H99
HA1 - HA4737
HM401 - HM1281
HN1 - HN995
History and Conditions. Social
Problems. Social Reform.
HQ1 - HQ2044
Family. Marriage. Women.
HS1 - HS3371
secret, benevolent, etc.
HT57 - HT1595
HV1 - HV9960
Pathology. Social and Public Welfare.
The numbers that
follow these beginning letters relate to the narrower scope of the item, for
example: the call number HQ755.8 represents books about parent-child
relationships, and the call number HQ759.92 is for books about
stepparent-stepchild relationships. An
example of a specific call number for a book entitled Remarriage and Stepparenting: Current Research and Theory is
totally different call number will appear.
This means the item is about more than sociology and higher importance
was given to the other subject when the call number was assigned.
