Classification System
Library materials, especially the books, are arranged using the Library of Congress Classification System (LC System) which is used by many academic and university libraries throughout the United States and the world as it is currently one of the most widely used library classification systems in the world. At the UCSI University Library, the interdisciplinary nature of any field requires the use of materials for a variety of subject areas. The LC System organizes the library materials according to twenty-one branches of knowledge. The 21 categories which are labelled A-Z (except for I, O, W, X and Y) are further sub-divided by adding one or two additional letters and a set of numbers.

For example, class N, Art, has subclasses NA for Architecture; NB for Sculpture, ND for Painting; as well as several other subclasses. Each subclass includes a loose hierarchical arrangement of the topics pertinent to the subclass, going from the general to the more specific. Individual topics are often broken down by specific places, time periods, or bibliographic forms (such as periodicals, biographies, etc.).
