During the summer of 2023 the contents of the Architecture Library based in the Department of Architecture moved across into the Andersonian Library. These books and journals are now being added into the main library. Whilst the project takes place the books will be held in a store but can be requested by all members of the library.
Library books are arranged by the Dewey Decimal classification scheme whereby each subject is represented by a number.
You wil find books on the same subject will have the same number. The shelfmark is preceded by the letter D and will be followed by 3 letters, which are usually the first 3 letters of the author's name.
Here are some useful shelfmarks.
D 624.1 Structural engineering and underground construction
D 691 Building materials
D 720 Architecture (general)
D 721 Architectural structure
D 729 Design and decoration
