How do I find a book?

Once you find a book, you can request it for pickup or you can find the book on the shelf using its call number. Be sure to write down the complete call number before trying to locate a book on the shelf.

All healthcare design related books will be found in this general area of our collection, mostly at the Heathrow campus library.

Call Numbers - Explained

Call numbers are used to group library items including books, DVDs, VHS, and audiobooks into subject categories and also provide a means to find those items.

Below are some example of call numbers from the library catalog. The collection the item is housed in is sometimes located at the beginning of the call number
(e.g. Ref = reference collection, Media = media collection, Oversize = oversized collection).
