Search tips

  • Be aware that spellings may vary – US/UK versions, e.g. counselling/counseling, behaviour/behavor
  • Try alternative terms for a concept, e.g. philosophy, thought, philosophical, philosopher, theory
  • The location of the book is under ‘Call Number’ (i.e. the classmark, found on the spine of the book) which gives the Dewey Decimal number and author surname code, e.g. 616.8914 VAN
  • The status will tell you if the book is available (checked in), and the ‘collection’ will tell you if a book is reference only.

If your search is successful you will be presented with a list of results. Each catalogue record shows the title, author, collection (e.g. 'reference') and the call number. You can click the title of the book to find out more details.

Each record shows the Status of the copy - "checked in" means it is available in the library, "checked out" means it is on loan.
