Finding Books on the Shelf

Classification numbers used for children's fiction may not be unique.

Fic Wil 2005 for example is used for:

  • Each Little Bird Sings by Deborah Wiles
  • Broken China by Lori Williams
  • Brothers in Hope by Mary Williams
  • The Illustrated Man by Jacqueline Wilson

Write down or remember the author's name. When you get to the right shelves (Juvenile Fic Wil in this example), books are filed alphabetically by author, then subfiled by title. The date is ignored.

If there is no author, the first 3 letters of the title will be used in the classification instead. This arrangement is common in public libraries and K-12 schools.
