The UNT Libraries currently use the Library of Congress call number system to classify the books in our collection.  Most of our German books are found on the third floor of Willis Library.

Books about the German language are found under call numbers PF 3001-PF 5999.

German literature books are found under call numbers PT 1-PT 4897.

PF 3625 is the main number for German dictionaries; PF 3640 is the main number for German-English dictionaries.  Since there is no longer a print reference section in the library, look for these on the regular shelves on 3rd floor.

Please note that all of the older German books classified under the Dewey system have been taken to remote storage.  If you need one that shows up in your search results, you can click the remote storage hotlink on your screen to fill out a request for it.  The courier will usually bring it for you within 24 hours, and you can check it out at the main circulation desk on 1st floor.  (Dewey uses numbers for classification rather than letters and numbers.  Call numbers for German are in the 430s.)
