Readerware extracts the The Library of Congress Call Number when cataloging from The Library of Congress. Other sites do not provide this information.

When using auto-catalog, include The LOC in your site selection list and check the merge option. Readerware will then get the call number.

For books already in the database, you can use auto-update. Again select The LOC and the Call Number column.

You can add the Call Number column to the table view. The Call Number is also included in the detail view. Select Call # from the drop down list to the left of the ISBN.
