Winder currently uses two identification systems concurrently (but 
not simultaneously for the same copy of any book!).  Its own, old 
system, labeled "Widener ...", and the Library of Congress's, labeled 
"WID-LC ...".  Other libraries, such as Lamont and Houghton, use 
their own systems of identification.
