Where are the brake pads and rotors located?

Where do the shims go between the brake pads?
These anti-squeal shims are either adhesive or non-adhesive pads made of either rubber or metal. They go in between the middle of the brake calipers and brake pads. If a brake shim were to become damaged or removed, then too many imperfections would exist between the rotors and pads.
