Shelf Numbers in Economics
At UCT Libraries, books are organized according to subject. Each subject (and sub-subject) is assigned a number. This number, which can be called a call number or a shelf number, is like a street address for a book. At UCT Libraries, because we use the Dewey Decimal System, this number can also be called the Dewey number. Here are the main shelf numbers in Economics:
- 330 Economics (General)
- 331 Labour economics
- 332 Financial economics
- 333 Land economics
- 334 Cooperatives
- 335 Socialism & related systems
- 336 Public finance
- 337 International economics
- 338 Production
- 339 Macroeconomics & related topics
