FAQs

How are the books arranged?

The books are divided into groups according to their subject. Each group is assigned a letter and a number (e.g. Philosophy = B1, Social communication = E15, Gender = K1 etc.). On shelves the groups are arranged in alphabetical and ascending order according to the letter and the number they were assigned.
Inside a particular group the books are arranged in a numerical line (each book has been given its own number). The new books are at the end of the lines. The whole call number (location) of a book has two parts. The first one is the notation of a subject group and then there is a number of a particular book (e.g. B1-156).
The books for on-site loan only are marked by a red circle label on the spine of the books.
