Books are classified using the Dewey Decimal Classification system making it easier for us to organise related subjects together on the shelves.  This in turn makes it easier for you to find the book you need. 

Not all books relevant to your course will be located in just one area, so you may have to look around the library to find what you need.

If you want to find out if the library holds a specific title you can search the Library Catalogue which will give you information about available books including the Dewey Decimal Classification number so you can locate the book you need. 

You can search for an author, title or keyword.
