Chester Fritz Library uses the Library of Congress Classification System (LC), an alpha-numeric system, to organize our materials including reference books, DVDs, and popular reading. 

General subject areas are shown in the first letter (for example: L = education) and the subsequent letters and numbers narrow the subject area and author to a single book.  

The entire LC system is available at the Library of Congress.

Here's the Education page.
