Finding Books on Your subject area in the Health Library – Using Dewey7 October 2013
You don’t have to be Sherlock to find books on our shelves….
When looking for a book on the shelf at the Health Library you need to know a little about how the books are arranged on the shelves. Books are arranged by subject in numerical sequence from 000 to 999.99.
This numerical sequence is known as a Dewey classmark.
If you have searched for a book using LibrarySearch note down the full classmark including the 3 letters on the end (which also help to identify the book) to be able to locate the item on the shelf.
If you find something on a subject that interests you- you will find more books on that subject in the surrounding area on the shelf so it will be worth having a little browse too.
Here are a couple of visuals to help you along;
