Call Numbers & Library of Congress Classification

    The ASU Library files the majority of our print materials according to the Library of Congress Classification - meaning that our items' call numbers begin with letters (rather than the Dewey Decimal system's use of numbers at the start of call numbers).
  • Items which focus on language and literature are generally assigned call numbers beginning with the letter P - regardless of format (books, digital video discs, journals, video recordings).
  • For detailed information about the P class, see the Class P: Language and Literature outline.
  • Unsure about terminology to use in your searches? Consult the Library of Congress Subject Headings - which is part of the Library of Congress Linked Data Service.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
