Call number
A combination of numbers and letters that provide a unique description of each item in a library collection. Items are arranged on the book shelves by call number, so the call number is the "address" of materials on the shelf.
Card catalog
A card file, arranged by author, title, and subject, listing all items owned by a library. The Main Card Catalog contains records for every cataloged item in the Library System from 1868-1975. Each departmental library maintained a separate card catalog of its own collection.
A study area for one person.
CD-ROM (Compact Disc Read-Only Memory)
An information technology which is used to store large databases and provides access to them via computer. These discs look like the compact discs you'd see in a music store. Instead of storing music, they store text. The Library has a limited number of CD-ROM as most materials are now online.
Check out or charge
To borrow books or periodicals from the library for a certain period of time.
To allow materials to be charged out.
Circulation desk
Location in each library where you check out, return or renew items, ask about missing items, or inquire about fines.
A citation is a reference or footnote to an item (such as a book or periodical article); a citation contains the author, title, date of publication, and any other information needed to locate the item.
Citation index
An index consisting essentially of a list of works which have been cited in other, later works, and a list of works from which the citations have been collected. Used to identify subsequently published works that are related by subject to the cited work.
Class number
Top part of a call number which stands for the subject matter of the book.
Classification scheme
Classification systems which use numbers and/or letters, to represent the subject content of materials. See alsoDewey Decimal Classification Scheme.

A serial publication issued less than 3 times a year, i.e. not often enough to be called a "periodical." Usually referred to as a "contin."

Copy card
A small plastic card that can be purchased and used in library photocopiers and laser printers on campus. (However at this time they do NOT work in Microfiche/film reader/printers). Copies made using the card are less expensive than using cash.
Corporate entry
A corporate body (company, institution, government agency, etc.) which is listed in a cataloging record as a heading for a publication (e.g., because the publication has no personal author).
