Using Library Search
This short video will show you how to use Library Search to discover books and articles in print and full text online at Chemeketa and many other libraries.
Finding Books on the Shelf
Our library uses the Dewey Decimal System to arrange books on the shelves
Each book is assigned a decimal number that represents its subject
There can be many books with the same decimal number
A second part of the call number is used to arrange books that have the same decimal number
Typically that line represents the author's name
Books shelved in special areas of the library have a tag that represents the area at the top of the call number
In the example pictured, after locating the Reference shelves of the library, read the decimal number first, then the next line. This call number represents a dictionary of English rhymes by an author named Upton.
