Where can I find my book?
Books are organised on our shelves by classmark (using the Dewey Decimal system). This page lets you find the physical location of a book on its shelf. If you want to know if the Library has a particular book in stock, you can search the Library Catalogue by title, author or subject. Just click on the big blue search button at the top of this page.
Search by classmark
Enter the classmark you are looking for. Just use the numeric classmark (e.g. 004.65 or 620) as letters are ignored. You can also enter a range (e.g. 800 - 900)
Search by subject keyword
Type a subject keyword and a dropdown will show matching entries. Your search is matched against the subject entry plus additional keywords (which are not displayed).
