Browsing Books by Subject 기계항공공학 분야의 책 찾기

To organize and arrange books by their subjects, the UNIST Library uses the Library of Congress Classification (LCC).

Here are two useful tools for browing books by subejct.

Classification Numbers

Various subejcts of books are notated as different classification numbers of the LCC.

When you search for books in specific subejcts, referring to the LC classification numbers can be quite helpful.

Here are classification numbers for Mechanical Engineering

청구기호: Library of Congress Classification (미국의회도서관 분류법)

청구기호는 책의 위치를 찾을 수 있는 ‘책의 주소’입니다.

UNIST 도서관은 과학 분야의 주제를 더 세부적으로 표현하는 미국의회도서관 분류법(LCC)을 이용하여 도서의 주제를 구분합니다.
