Once you identify an item of interest in the CRC's catalog, you will need to find it within the library.
Each item has a Call Number. The call number tells you, the library user, precisely where in the library the item is located. As you search for books and other materials in the CRC, pay close attention to the call number associated with your item.
All CRC books are preceded with JUV (for Juvenile), but it's what's after the JUV that's important.
A fiction book is JUV immediately followed by a letter (A-Z). This letter tells you the first letter of the author's last name. A book with the call number JUV R4624ba will be in the fiction section, particularly with all the R books because it's written by Aaron Reynolds.
A biography is JUV immediately followed by the number 92 or 920.
A nonfiction book is JUV immediately followed by a Dewey number. The Dewey number is followed by a letter, which, like fiction, tells you the first letter of the author's last name. JUV 796.357 N427n is a nonfiction book (796.357) by Kadir Nelson (N427).
If you happen to find an item that begins with TA instead of JUV, the material is in our Teaching Aids section. Feel free to ask a librarian for help!
