UCSB Library, like most academic libraries, follows the Library of Congress Classification System for many of its collections. The LC system arranges books/materials by subject.
The Government Information collections are organized following different systems: Superintendent of Documents (sudocs) Classification (printable guide) for U.S. government publications, and a variation known as California Documents (caldocs) Classification for publications from the State of California.
