The University of Kentucky Libraries uses the Library of Congress Classification System (LCC) to assign call numbers to most print materials--books, periodicals, and music scores.
LCC call numbers can tell you a lot about a book or score before you even find it on the shelf.
This page shows you how to read a call number, lists call number ranges for music materials, and how to find materials on subjects outside music.
