Call numbers identify the physical location of an item in the collection.
The chart shows where each letter is shelved in Bobst Library. Click on the floor links to get a map of the floor and call number locations on that floor, and the subject area of the Call Number.
NYU Libraries use the Library of Congress system, in which the call number always begins with a letter of the alphabet (The letter broadly identifies the item's subject matter).
