Library Information

The library's collections may be used by all institution members. The library space is intended for use by students and staff of the institution..

To locate a book in the library, use the library's OPAC to search for the title, author, or subject. Once you find the book online, click on its detail link to access the location, call number, and status.

Each book is identified with its own unique call number. This number is used to locate the books on the shelves.

Check around the shelf section. Sometimes people put books back in the wrong order. This is why shelving accurately is a priority for librarians.

Ask a librarian. It may be waiting to be shelved, checked out or even missing. A librarian can help you find a suitable alternative if needed.

If you need help, ask our Reference Specialists at the Enquiry Desk. They can:
