I need some books on my topic
There is more than one way to search for books in the library - start with the Search page:
Use Summon to do a broad search to find out what the Library has on your topic. Your results will be ranked according to relevance and can be refined by selecting a tag, or limiting by date, location etc.
Use the UOW Library Catalogue to search for a specific author, title, call number or subject code (eg. ACCY101).
Choose 'more options' for advanced keyword searching on your topic or to set limits.
I have the call number from the catalogue, what do I do now?
Call numbers organise the books by subject and will help you to find them on the shelves. Spaces and slashes (/) separate the different parts of the call number, e.g. 378.170281/22.
- Write down all parts of the call number
- Use the labels on the bookshelves to find 378.170281 (remember, 378.17 comes before it and 378.171 comes after)
- Look at the sequence of books at 378.170281 to find 378.170281/22
