Law Research Assistant Guide to the Law Library

This guide is designed to assist UC Law Research Assistants.

Finding Material in the Law Library

What Are Call Numbers?

The Law Library organizes books using the Library of Congress classification scheme. Each book is labeled with its own unique call number, and that call number is like an address that tells you where in the library to find that book. Each of the library's stacks is labeled with the call number range that it includes. If you know the title of the book you are looking for, you can find its location and call number in our online catalog.

Please refer to our maps for a better understanding of where in the Library each call number range is located. Remember to note the location of the item you are looking for (Law Stacks, Reserves, Morgan, Reference etc.).
