To find a book within the Library you will need the book's unique classmark (also called a shelfmark). If you have not already found the classmark, search the Library catalogue.
The library uses a classification system called the Dewey Decimal system - each subject is given a number/classmark sometimes called the shelfmark. Material is arranged on the shelves in numerical order.
A book will have a label on its spine with the relevant classmark.
The catalogue will indicate this number to show where a book is located in the library.
