So in high school and at the public library, you use the Dewey Decimal System to find books. You write down some numbers and your book is on the shelf where the numbers are.
Here at Webster University Library, we use the Library of Congress classification system. It has both letters and numbers, so it looks a little different. Most universities use this system because it's easier to find the type of books universities collect. Here's a great link that helps you read Library of Congress call numbers (the numbers on the side of the book that help you find that book on the shelf).
We have TONS of awesome stuff on DVD. Movies, TV shows, documentaries, and more. Check out our collection on the 1st floor. Also, we have lots of online video that you can watch from home - head over to this page for more info on that.
