    Main Library

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

    Everything is organised by call number - a string of numbers and letters based on the subject of the book (we use the Dewey system). LibrarySearch will tell you the call number for any item you want (our topic guides on the ends of the shelves also give you some call numbers 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 a minimum of one week (books then automatically renew unless requested by someone else) though a few are Reference (they have a red stripe on their spine) and can't be taken out. You can borrow 20 items at a time from the Main Library.
