When you use SEARCH to find books, look for the call number and write it down (or search on your phone and take that with you).
Some tips for using Dewey to find books:
Period (.) and slashes (/) separate the different parts of the call number, e.g. 378.170281/22.
Use the labels on the bookshelves to find 378.170281 (remember, 378.17 comes before it and 378.171 comes after).
Look at the sequence of books at 378.170281 to find 378.170281/22.
The number after the slash is the approximate location of the book on the shelf.
Check that you have the correct edition.
If you can't find the book you're looking for, check if there is another copy or ebook version. If you think it's lost, let us know.
