Finding Books in the Media Center:

Books are divided into categories

F stands for Fiction

B or 92 stands for Biography

REF stands for Reference

Dewey #s stand for Nonfiction

Underneath any of these, you will find the

first three letters of the author’s last name

(which makes up the call number for the book)

The Fellowship of the

Ring by J.R.R. Tolkein



(fiction book)

Ballet and Modern Dance

by Jack Anderson



Example Call Numbers:


If Mrs. Butler wrote a fiction book, what would the call number look like?

  • B But

  • F But

    (nonfiction book)

Using Destiny Quest (OPAC):

  • OPAC is the Online Public Access Catalog

  • It is a database of all the materials that we have here in the library

  • You can search by title, author, subject or keyword to find your materials

  • It will tell you whether or not the book is checked out, how many copies we have of the book, a summary, and the book’s call number.
