 Guide to Shelfmarks

The main collections of books can be found on the 4th and 5th floor of the Library.

Books in heavy demand are placed in the Short Loan Collection on the ground floor. The Short Loan Collection contains 1 day loan and 3 hour loan books; 7 day loan books are shelved with the ordinary loan books on the upper floors.

Use the Library catalogue to find the exact shelfmark and location for each book. If you are searching for books on a particular topic, use a keyword search.

Books on Europe (including politics, economics and integration) are mainly shelved on the 4th floor at shelfmark 3 (in the social sciences collection)

Books on European law are shelved in the law collection on the 2nd Floor (Shelfmark 34)

The European Documentation Centre (EDC) collection is on the 2nd Floor East.
