SUNY Fredonia uses the Library of Congress Classification System (LCC) to assign call numbers to most print materials--books, periodicals, and music scores.
The Library of Congress Classification System is divided into large subject areas which are called "classes." All classes--and subclasses--begin with one, two, or three letters followed by a number which represents more specific aspects of a subject.
This page shows you how to read a call number and lists call number ranges for biology materials.
Books on biology have call numbers starting with QH 301 and ending with QH 705:
|LC Call Numbers||Description|
|QH1 → 278.5||Natural History (General)|
|QH1 → (199.5)||General (including nature conservation, geographical distribution)|
|QH201 → 278.5||Microscopy|
|QH301 → 705.5||Biology (General)|
|QH359 → 425||Evolution|
|QH426 → 470||Genetics|
|QH471 → 489||Reproduction|
|QH501 → 531||Life|
|QH540 → 549.5||Ecology|
|QH573 → 671||Cytology|
|QH705 → 705.5||Economic Biology|
These books are located on the third floor of the Carnahan-Jackson Center.
