How to find items on the library shelves
All our libraries use a numbering system called Dewey to arrange books on the shelves.
The way it works is that each subject is given a number and then books are arranged on the shelves in numerical order.
The easiest way to locate books in the library is to use the search box located on most library web pages, called Search + Find.
Some useful shelf numbers for Business include:
A library search will indicate the shelf number where the book is located. In some cases this will also show the first three letters of the authors surname, in order to more easily locate the material you are searching for.
Please remember with regard to books in the Galway campus library, items shelved from 001 to 499 and from 700 to 999 are located on the ground floor and those from 500 to 699 are on the first floor
