Where to Find Biology Books in Our Print Collection

The LRC is in the middle of updating our collection from the Dewey Decimal Classification System to the Library of Congress Classification System. This means that the call numbers you use to find books will change. Dewey Decimal call numbers begin with a 3-digit number (000, 100, 200, etc.). Library of Congress call numbers begin with a 1- or 2-letter code (A, HJ, LB, etc.).
