The Library book collection is arranged in the Library of Congress Classification System that identifies a unique call number for each book. The call number is a series of letters and digits reflecting the subject of the book and its place on the library shelf.
Works in literature and literary criticism are placed in the P section of the collection and broken down into areas of individual literatures or subtopics.
PL Languages & literatures of Eastern Asia, Africa & Oceania
PN Literature (General)
PQ French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese Literature
PR English Literature
PS American Literature
PT German Literature
