What does the plus sign (+) in a call number mean?

589 views   |   Last updated on Jan 09, 2018    books


Plus signs (+) in call numbers mean that a book is taller than normal and is in the oversize section, at the end of each letter section. 

For example, if you see the following call number: 

F1410 +R395 2000

you will want to look for this book at the end of the F section, before the books with G call numbers. 

The Science Library does not have an oversize section at the end of each call number section.
