Finding Books

Most of the Library is arranged into subjects by numbers 000-999.  There are some other areas that have letters instead of numbers; such as 

RC - is The Reading Collection which is full of stories.  These are on the shelves against the wall. 

FC - s The Film Collection which has lots of DVD's that you can borrow -  These are on the round shelves near to the stairs.

JF and JFY  These are story books in a collection near to the Technology & Media  counter. 

IL is for Independent Living  - These are shelved against the wall.

You can search for books using the white machines in the Library.  To take any books or DVD;s out you can use the black machines.  Any problems finding what you want, just ask a member of staff. 

Finding your way around

The Library is in David Hockney Building on the second floor

 

Use the white machines in the library to find a book; or go to the shelves and have a look  around at a subject area

Independent Living Collection

We have  some books and DVD's in a special collection called "Independent Living" . 

These are on the shelves against the wall between the Reading Collection and Graded Readers.  They have "IL" written on a blue sticker on the side.   Ask someone in the Library or your tutor to show you where they are.
