Taking a Field Trip?
You'll appreciate the uniformity
You've learned that most libraries across the country use either Dewey or LC to organize their books. Here's another useful thing to know: most libraries buy their call numbers from the same company.
So, if you find a book in one library that uses the Library of Congress system, chances are that the call number would be the same (or very close to the same) in another library using LC. The same is true for libraries using Dewey Decimal.
