Every book that you find in ALICE or OhioLINK will have a call number assigned to it. Call numbers are an alphanumerical system for organizing books for subject.
Call numbers are usually labeled on the spine of each book, towards the bottom. Thinner books will also about the call number label on the front cover, on the top left corner.
They can be read line for line:
If we don't have the item you need (or if we do have it but it's not available for some reason), be sure to see if OhioLINK can provide it for you. OhioLINK is a statewide network of around 90 library systems. In most cases, you can quickly and easily borrow books from OhioLINK for free.
If you're using ALICE, you can always click on the OhioLINK button (in the right sidebar) to repeat a search in the central catalog.
