**Review**

• A final example of correctly ordered call numbers:

K 558 1997 |
K 558 2008 |
K 558 1977 |
K 564 2000 |
K 564 2000 |

• Remember that the first numbers in a call number are read as whole numbers, but the Cutter numbers are read as decimals. A book may have two Cutter numbers. If the Cutter numbers become confusing, add zeros to the end of the smaller number to give them both the same amount of digits.

• Volume and copy numbers are also read as whole numbers.

• Check all the carts and study tables for books to shelve.

• Be sure to bring the books to the edge of the shelf when edging.

• Do not rush when shelving or shelf-reading. It is important that you take your time so that the task is done correctly with as few errors as possible. We do not expect perfection, but we do want to minimize errors.
