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 music composition materials.
Books on music composition can be found under classes ML and MT:
|LC Call Numbers||Description|
|ML93 → 96.5||Manuscript studies and manuscripts|
|ML112.8 → 158.8||Bibliography|
|ML159 → 3785||History and Criticism|
|ML3797 → 3799.5||Musical Research|
|ML3800 → 3923||Philosophical and societal aspects of music. Physics and acoustics of music. Physiological aspects of music|
|MT35 → 39||Notation|

|MT68||Improvisation / Accompaniment / Transposition|
|MT70 → 74||Instrumentation and Orchestration|
