Finding your book on the shelves

Once you have done a search on the Library Catalogue to find out where your book is shelved, from the Item Details screen, view the Holdings box and make a note of the Shelf Mark:


1) Each book in the Library has been classified using the Dewey Decimal Classification System and given a class number (or Shelf Mark). 

2) Click on the Map link to view a floor plan showing which area of the Library your item is shelved in.

3) Follow the number sequence on the shelves to find the number where your book is shelved, and then follow the letter sequence alphabetically.

If the item is an eBook it will say [electronic resource] after the title. For these, click on the View this electronic resource link to access the eBook. Enter your standard username and password to log in when prompted.
