Classic Catalog

You can browse by call number but at this time you can't do a specific call number search. Here are a couple of ways to view our collections by browsing by call numbers.

First, you must choose a library in the upper right corner where it says "Switch to another library". Then when you click on the 'Browse' tab, you will see a 'Search for': drop down box. Choose 'Call number'. Then put in the start of the call number you want to browse. For instance, if you want to look at Fiction, type in FIC and click on 'Go!'

Your results reflect what is assigned to the branch that you have chosen. At this time there is not a way to browse by the entire Sno-Isle Libraries collection by call number in our catalog. Tip: You might try choosing our Lynnwood or Marysville branches as they have our largest collections.

Another way you can browse call numbers is at the keyword search screen, choose a format such as book. You will notice an asterisk appeared in the 'Keyword search for:' box. Click on 'Go!' You now have a large set of results. Use the 'Sort' drop down box and choose 'Call Number'. This will place your results in call number order. You can expand your display to 100 items per page so you can browse the call numbers more quickly.
