2. FIND A BOOK ON THE SHELVES
When you find the listing of the book you want, write down the CALL NUMBER. These are the letters and/or numbers that you see under the image of the book in the online catalog
 
3. BORROW THE BOOK
Now that you have the book in your hands, you need to borrow it from the library. Get out your STUDENT ID CARD and show it at the Circulation Desk. Yes, you absolutely need that ID CARD to borrow the book. Replacement ID cards may be purchased at the library for $5.00.
You may borrow up to SIX books at a time. The limit for magazine checkouts is one at a time.

4. LEARN MORE ABOUT FINDING BOOKS
Once you know how to use the Dewey Decimal System, you can find books in all libraries that use it. Most K-12 schools and public libraries organize their books in Dewey order.  Click HERE for the Dewey Decimal rap to help you remember how the system works.
 
FYI - The College of the Canyons Library and most  university libraries use a different shelving system called Library of Congress Classification Numbers (LCCN).
