The Library is using Library of Congress Classification (LC) and MARC 21 Communication Format with MARC-8 character encoding for its bibliographic records.

LC is an alpha-numeric library classification system developed by the Library of Congress that establishes the order of books on the shelf by subject heading (topic). Most academic libraries use this numbering system. Most public libraries use the Dewey Decimal system. An updated list of the major Library of Congress (LC) classification headings and subheadings can be found on LOC.gov.  

In our library Books classified A-BT are in Basement A. Books classified BV- ZZ are located in Basement B.
