    Main Library

    In the Main Library on the ground floor you will find all our academic textbooks and print journals.

    Everything is organised by shelfmark - a string of numbers and letters based on the subject of the book (we use the Dewey system). The Library Catalogue will tell you the shelfmark for any item you want (our topic guides on the ends of the shelves also give you some shelfmarks to get started) and the numbered signs above each aisle tell you which numbers are where.

    Most of the Main Library books can be borrowed for either one week (yellow stripe on spine) or two weeks (no stripe on spine), though a few are Reference (red stripe) and can't be taken out. You can borrow 15 items at a time from the Main Library.
