Architecture: Find Books

What's a Call Number

Refer to call numbers to find our books on the shelves. Every book is assigned a call number which tells you where in the library you can find it. FAU Libraries use the Library of Congress classification system, which uses letters and numbers to designate subjects covered (example: PE1075 .L47 2007). Need more help, click here.
