There is a typographical error in the call number for the book “Knox College.”
It is being fixed.

While browsing the stacks at the Allen County Public Library recently, I noticed a book that appeared to be out of its geographic element. The book “Knox College,” actually a 1993 yearbook for that institution, was shelved in the materials for Gallatin County, Illinois. Knox College is located in Knox County, Illinois.

The reason for the unexpected location of the book in the stacks was due to a typographical error in the call number of the book. That was why the book was placed where it was.

Everyone can occasionally make a mistake. Browsing the stacks is still a great way to find things and a way to catch errors of this type.

Note: the library is aware of the error.
