Find a book in your library

When you walk in a library and see books on the shelves, the call number is usually seen on the bottom part of a book’s spine.

Library staff put spine labels (see below) on their books to organize them according to subject.

Search the library’s online catalog to view the call number of the book you are interested in checking out, so you will be able to swiftly locate the book in the library.

 

You can view the subclasses of R (Medicine) to familiarize yourself with the various subjects to have a better understanding when searching for books.
