Q. How do I find a book?
In the Library catalogue, each book will have a location such as ‘Open Collection’ and a call number such as 746.920902 WATS. Call numbers indicate which section a book is in, the letters that follow tell you where on the shelf the book is.
- For books listed as Open Collection, click on the LOCATE button to view a floor plan that contains these shelves, e.g. the 746. Browse the shelves sequentially using the numbers then letters to locate the book.
- For books listed as Reserve, browse the Reserve room located on level 7 using the number than letters to locate the book.
- For books listed as Library Retrieval System, follow the instructions on the Borrowing, Renewals, Fines and Access page.
If you are unable to find the book on the shelf and it says Available in the catalogue, contact the Library either through Chat or by speaking to a Library staff member.
