University of Wyoming - Libraries

Browsing the Libraries by Call Number: A to C

Designed to take subjects and convert them into LC call numbers suggestions where patrons might find materials in our collections.

Introduction

The majority of library materials at the University of Wyoming Libraries are shelved according to the Library of Congress (LC) classification system.  This call number schema uses a mix of letters and numbers to identify an item's unique location in the stacks (the portion of the library where books and media are shelved).

Please refer to the detailed list of subjects presented in this guide to identify the most likely corresponding call number(s) for a particular topic. Subjects in blue provide links to the classification breakdowns.
