Q. What type of order are library books put in at Baker Libraries?
The Baker College libraries use the Library of Congress Classification system.
- Academic libraries use this because it provides greater precision in most fields of study and room for expansion.
- The Dewey Decimal Classification system is used primarily in public libraries.

- You can see an outline of the Library of Congress Classification system at http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/lcco/. For example, a book might have a call number of BF 76.7 .P83 2010. BF 76.7 stands for the subject (Psychology), and 2010 indicates that the book was published in 2010.
