Italian subject guide



Where are my books and print journals?

Although the main Italian section is housed on Level 2 East at the PN classmark, there are a number of other areas which 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.
