E&S and Hunt libraries will undergo changes this summer

Starting this summer, all books in the Engineering & Science and Hunt libraries will be renumbered to convert them from Dewey Decimal Classification system to Library of Congress Classification (LCC).

This change has already taken place in libraries of the Mellon Institute, Qatar, and the Software Engineering Institute.

The upcoming reclassification will affect about 500,000 books among the two libraries.

The changes will allow the Carnegie Mellon library system to translate easily into other academic environments. Once students and faculty learn the system, they will be able to use the same skills in other libraries, making it easier to perform research.

Library staff will deliver ongoing project updates via campus media, in the libraries, and on the University Libraries website at (
