Note the Call Number and Location—this tells you where to find the book on the shelf Unlike books in the General Collection on the top floor, the Children’s books are organized by the Dewey Decimal System Some books are marked “Harsh” or “H”, because they were donated by former FHSU Professor Donna Harsh. Others are marked J for Juvenile. At one time these were two separate collections, but now, the books are all shelved together, so you can disregard the “Harsh” designation.

Reading Dewey Decimal Call Numbers:

The letter after 47 is the first letter in the book’s title. The last number is the year the book was published. Y51 = the author “Yin”
