Tips on using the Library and its resources - No. 1.

We are re-starting our weekly series of tips to help you find and use Library resources. This week:

Looking for a particular book? 

Go to the Library web site where you will see the "Search the Library catalogue" search box. Type in the author’s surname and one or two words from the title – don’t put in any first names, initials, dates, etc. If there's more than one author, just use the surname of the first one.

For example, if you are looking for …

Cottrell, S., 2013. The study skills handbook. 4th ed. Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan

… just type in Cottrell Study Skills and you will see it on the list of results. Then click on the title of the book to see more information, such as the availability of copies and the shelfmark. The shelfmark gives you the location of the book on the Library shelves, so you will need to make a note of it before you go off to the shelves.
