You didn't give me enough information to definitively answer your question. The call number you give (001.94) is incomplete. There should be a letter and some additional numbers after it. That would tell me exactly what book you are looking for. This number uses the Dewey Decimal system. Most of the books in Stapleton are arranged by the Library of Congress sytem. There are only a few areas in the library that still use Dewey. In Stapleton, the main area is the Children's Collection. This collection is on the 2nd floor of the Library, across the bridge into the Stabley part of the building and then all the way back to the west side of that floor. The collection is arranged by the three-digit numbers. Two of our branch libraries (the Northpointe campus in Armstrong County and the Punxsutawney campus) also have some Dewey books and they are also listed in the catalog. You probably need to go back to the PILOT online catalog and get the Location and the Full Call number. The Location will point you to the right place. If the record does have a Dewey Number, but says "Stapleton Library", that item is probably missing. We are in the process of converting all the Stapleton Dewey items to Library of Congress and we've finished with the 001 area. If there's still something in the catalog, it has been missing quite a while.
