How to Read Call Numbers?

A Call Number is the address of a book on the shelf. It is a combination of numbers and letters. At the BUE Library we use the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) as part of the call number besides the first three letters of the author’s last name (or the first three letter of the title in case there are more than 3 authors).

What are the Possible Call Numbers for Architectural Engineering Books according to DDC?
