Finding the right shelf

Once you have found a book using the Library catalogue or Discovery Service, you can find the bookshelf it is on using the "locate on shelf" button.

Click this button to bring up a 3D floor plan showing which length of shelving the book you want should be on.

You can also use our subject finder to search by subject or shelfmark and to view a map with the location highlighted.  It works really well on your phone, which means you can carry the map with you as you find the right shelf!
