Finding books in the Library

The Library uses the Dewey Decimal Classification system which groups all books according to subject, using a 'classmark' made up of numbers, these numbers are usually followed by the first three letters of the author's surname.

Heritage Online (the library catalogue) displays the location, classmark and availability of each item.

Some key subject areas and their Dewey numbers are listed below to help you get started. Please ask staff if you need any help finding books.
