Coaching and Mentoring: Books & eBooks

Finding books

Using the Catalogue

You should always start your search for books at the catalogue, even if you know the general area where the books you need are stored in the library.  The catalogue can tell you exactly where on the shelves the book you need is, which campus it is in and if it is available.

Browsing the shelves can be a useful way of finding books, but the catalogue will not only also let you know about eBooks, but also the different places books on your topic will be shelved.  For example, most of your books are in the 641s, but you'll find some hygiene books at 363.192, nutrition in the 612s and 613s.
