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 education begins with "L". The basic breakdown is as follows:
L7 - L991
LA5 - LA2396
History of Education
LB5 - LB3640
Theory and Practice of Education
LC8 - LC6691
Special Aspects of Education
LD13 - LD7501
Individual Institutions; United States
LE3 - LE78
Individual Institutions; America, except United States
LF14 - LF5477
Individual Institutions; Europe
LG21 - LG961
Individual Institutions; Asia. Africa. Oceania
LH1 - LH9
College and School Magazines and Papers
LJ3 - LJ75
Student Fraternities and Societies, United States
LT6 - LT501
The numbers that follow these beginning letters relate to the narrower subject of the item. For example, a book about teaching children with ADHD would begin with the call number LC4713, while a book about distance learning would begin with LC5803.
Occasionally a very different call number will appear. This means the item is about more than education, and higher importance was given to the other subject when the call number was assigned.
