A file of catalog cards filed in call number order, that is, in the same order the books are found on the shelf. At Princeton, there are both Richardson and Library of Congress shelf lists, each of which is arranged by location and then by call number. The shelf list was closed in 1995.
The part of the UIUC Library card catalog which arranges cards by Dewey Decimal call number rather than by author or title (i.e., a classified catalog). The shelflist was used formerly to give location and holdings information, but has been replaced for this purpose since 1978 by the online catalog. Some holdings for serials which ceased publication before 1950 are ONLY listed in the shelflist. Holdings for these items are gradually being added to the online catalog.
