About Library of Congress Call Numbers
The WMU Libraries uses the Library of Congress (LC) classification for its books. Because of its peculiarities, you can rarely search in just ONE place for books on your topic. Use the catalog to identify books, and if you see a pattern emerging in call numbers, then you can go browse in that area in the stacks.
