Call numbers in Inaya College Libraries follow the Dewey Decimal Classification System. For example: a book with the class number 320 (political science) would be shelved before another at 320.5 (ideology, a concept in political science), which would be shelved before another at 320.51 (liberalism, an ideology).
If the catalogue record says "available" and it does not seem to be in its assigned shelf location, there are a number of possibilities:
  • The item has been returned and is in the process of being re-shelved or on the book carts there. Ask at the desk.
  • The item has been miss-shelved; often, circulation staff can find such an item quickly.
  • A library user is using the item in the library.
  • The item is missing.
  • Library circulation staff will be happy to search for the book(s). Visit circulation desk and report that you cannot find the book and would like a staff member to search for it and notify you if it is located
To find the book in the Library you need to know the location, the status and the class Number:
The status tells you whether or not the item is available
  • Books which are available are shown as available
  • Books which are on loan show the date when the book is due to be returned
  • Books which have recently been returned and not yet re-shelved will be on shelving cart
  • The location tells you which Library the item is held.
  • The class Number tells you where to find the item on the shelf
First the books are grouped together by number and then within that number by a 3-letter code:
  • 100s come before 200s, come before 300s
  • 152 comes before 153
  • 153.5 comes before 153.6
