Books, journals, kits and DVDs in the USC Library are shelved by subject. Call numbers on books and journals appear most often on the spine or on the front cover if the spine is too narrow.
Here's a sample call number, with explanation of how this affects the way the item is shelved:
HN49.P6 H56 1995
HN - describes general subject area; shelved alphabetically
49 - narrows subject area; numerical order (whole number)
.P6 - subject area OR author; alphabetical then decimal order
H56 - (if present) alphabetical then decimal order
1995 - year of publication, numerical order
Every title in the collection has a UNIQUE call number, but extra copies of a book or DVD will have an identical call number.
Different editions of the same book will have the same basic call number EXCEPT for the date at the end.
