Books are arranged at the University of Wyoming by the Library of Congress (LC) cataloging system. This format is alphanumeric, but always starts with a letter that corresponds to a specific subject. Additional letters and numbers complete the sequence to provide a specific "address" of where the book (or other item) is located in the library collection.
Each entry in the library catalog provides the LC call number and the location of the item.
In Coe Library, the collection begins with "A" on Level 1 (basement) and continues to "Z" on Level 5. This map shows the current arrangement of the collection by floor: http://www-lib.uwyo.edu/about/maps/
