JMU uses the Library of Congress Classification System to organize books. There are 21 major categories in this system. The first letter of the call number for a library book indicates the category to which it belongs.
Category M is located in the Music Library. Categories G, H, J, K, L, Q, R, S, T, U, V, and Z are located in Rose Library. All other categories are located in Carrier Library until the end of the spring semester 2023. They will then be moved to storage while Carrier Library is being renovated.
