can use the catalogue to search for books by author,
title or subject. This will give you the book's location
(shelfmarks). The Library uses two classification schemes.
Most materials have a numerical shelfmark e.g. books
about management are shelved at 658. Some older
material has an alphabetical shelfmark e.g. older books
about management are shelved at IWS.
The catalogue also tells you the number
of copies we have and the loan status of the books.
Most books are 3 week loan, but some are 1 week loan
or 1 day loan, and some are for reference only.
Heavily used material can be found in
the Reading Room Collection and there is a general reference
area by the help desk on level 1 for dictionaries and directories.
You can also use the online catalogue
to renew your books. Renewals can also be made by telephone or via the self-issue machines on the ground floor.
