Classical Studies subject guide



Where are my books and print journals?

The main Classics section is at the PA classmark on Level 2 East; a number of other areas will also be of interest. The list below gives an outline of some areas of interest.

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.



FAQs: what if it's...

Not on the shelf

Ask at the IT & Library Support Desk desk for help, but first you could try these tips.

Not in the Main Collection

The Location/Loan type field in catalogue search results tells you in which collection an item is held. See the locations and loan types page for information on how to get hold of an item.
