Finding resources



All of the Library’s books can be found on Discovery. Here is a link to our helpful Discovery guide.

Using the two infographics below, you should be able to:

  • Understand what a shelfmark is (i.e. how the Dewey Decimal Classification scheme works)
  • Use the shelfmark to find a resource that is available on the shelves
  • Use the class number to find resources that are available electronically

You can find all the information about borrowing items from the library here in our Borrow, Return, Renew guide.
