Library of Congress Classification Help

The AIC library arranges resources by topic, using a system developed by the Library of Congress. If the call number has a prefix, it designates the special area of the library where the materials are found. Example: HD 57.7 C64. In this example, HD is for the topic category of industry, land use and labor; 57.7 is a subcategory; and C64 is a code for the author’s last name.

Prefixes:

  • NAC = Native American Collection
  • Ref = Reference Room upstairs
  • Juv = Juvenile Collection
  • VHS = Video
  • OVR = Oversized book in Reference Room

Information for Faculty

Faculty may place library materials on reserve for a class. Materials will be held behind the circulation desk, available to students for 2-hour access in the library.

Library Meeting Room:

Faculty may hold a class session in the reference room to provide instruction to students as they begin their research. Contact us to reserve the room on the date needed.

Class Sessions:

We can deliver customized instruction on research in classes. We also provide tours of library resources targeted to specific class resource needs. Contact us to discuss dates and topic.

Checkout Period:

Faculty may check out materials until the end of the semester.

Collection Development:

Donations:

The library accepts donations of academic works for AIC curriculum meeting these criteria: in good condition, with no marks or underlining; published in 1990 or more recently; professional or scholarly content.

Library Cooperative

AIC participates in a cooperative of local theological libraries, the TLCA. AIC students and faculty may visit other libraries in the TLCA, show their AIC ID card, use resources and check out books. This sharing of resources expands the materials available to the AIC community and makes our library available to others as well.
