How to find a book

Shelf Numbers of books (DDC number)

At CPUT Libraries, books are organized according to subject. Each subject (and sub-subject) is assigned a number. This number, which can be called a call number or a shelf number, is like a street address for a book. AtCPUT Libraries, because we use the Dewey Decimal System, this number can also be called the Dewey number or Shelf Number. The libary is divided into sections according to the faculty colours:

Busines faculty- navy blue

Engineering faculty - green

Informatic & Design - red

Helath and Wellness - purple

Education - orange
