Call numbers are how we find the books on the shelves.

Each book has its own unique call number.

When you search the NewCat+ library catalogue for a book or item it will have a call number. Write down the whole call number of the book you want to find. Take note if NewCat+ says it is ‘In Library.’


  1. The library which holds the item.
  2. The call number to locate the book on the shelves.
  3. If the item is currently on loan; on hold; or on the shelf (In Library).

The shelves have signs on the end of each row indicating the call number range in that row.
