How to Read Call Numbers

Call numbers are used to identify individual works. A call number is divided into lines: each line gives distinct information about the work. You can find a score's call number on the cover of the work.

Example Description
M The first line of a call number contains the work's class. The class indicates the subject of the work. Class M is exclusively used for music scores.
260 The second line of a call number contains the work's class number. Class numbers organize works within the same class into subcategories. Class M uses class numbers from 1 to 5000.

G55

D5

A class number is typically followed by one or more Cutter numbers. A Cutter number is a combination of letters and numbers exclusive to an individual composer, arranger, title, publisher, etc.
1975 A call number typically ends with one or more lines about the work itself. This can include a date of composition, date of publication, opus number, volume number, etc.
