Where are my books and print journals?
The best starting point to search for materials is the Library catalogue. The main Anthropology section is housed on Level 3 East with classmarks from HK to HL, but a number of other areas will also be of interest. The list below gives a brief guide to the main areas.
Journals are shelved near the books of the same subject but on separate shelving with green shelf labels - look out for the green areas on the Library maps.

The Big Move
The Library is changing its classmarks to standard Library of Congress classification. This means books may move and some titles may be temporarily shelved in more than one place.
Always look up the classmark of the book on the Library catalogue. If you can't find it on the shelf, ask a member of staff for help.
