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 women's and gender studies materials.
Books on women's and gender studies have call numbers starting with HQ 1 and ending with HQ 2044:
|LC Call Numbers||Description|
|HQ12 → 449||Sexual life|
|HQ19 → 30.7||Sexual behavior and attitudes. Sexuality|
|HQ75 → 76.8||Homosexuality. Lesbianism|
|HQ503 → 1064||The family. Marriage. Home|
|HQ1101 → 2030.7||Women. Feminism|
These books are located on the first floor of the Carnahan-Jackson Center.
