Each book in the library will have a classmark, consisting of a series of letters and numbers.
This code is shown on the spine of a book and allows all books on a similar subject to be shelved in a similar place.
You will find the classmark displayed on the Locations & Requests screen in NUsearch.
The classmark for “Urban habitats by C P Wheater” is (QH 541.5.C6 WHE) This can be broken down to explain how it works:
Please note that the format of classmarks can vary between different libraries and different campuses.
The classmarks are arranged in an alpha-numeric sequence. Each bay of shelving should tell you what classmark ranges are housed in that bay.
You can use classmarks in searches in NUsearch. Simple classmarks (e.g. QH541) can be typed straight into the Library Collections search box.
