All printed materials such as books and journals in NUS Libraries are assigned with a Call Number following the Library of Congress classification system. These are the "codes" pasted on the spine of the book, such as QA303.2 Wei 2014.

The beauty of such classification is that all titles on the same/similar topics will be arranged next to each other on the bookshelves, allowing users to enjoy an efficient browsing experience. The following table lists the major categories under the LC classification system for the subject of Mathematics.
