Where have all my books gone?

As previously announced, we have been moving all of the books in the Library. We have brought the older books downstairs and shelved them together with the books which were in the Barnard Room. This means that the books are now shelved in one sequence. We hope this will make it easier for you to find the books you need.

If, however, you're struggling to find the item you want, here's a quick guide to where our monographs are now located.

All books published from 1900 to present are listed in our Library Catalogue. Use the Library Catalogue to see if we have the item you need and to find the shelfmark.

All books published from 1990 to present are shelved on the main floor of the Library. They are shelved in shelfmark order and run clockwise round the Reading Room before running clockwise round the photocopy room and clockwise round the Barnard Room.

Books published between 1900-1989 are kept in the Basement and must be requested. Library staff will fetch requested items twice a day.

Books published before 1900 are kept in a secure, environmentally controlled environment and an appointment to view these items must be made. Our Rare Books webpage provides further information.

Our pamphlet collection has moved up to the Gallery. All pamphlets published from 1900 to present are available to browse and borrow. Details of the pamphlets published since 1970 are available on our Library Catalogue. We are currently adding details of the pre-1970 pamphlets to the catalogue. Pamphlets published before 1900 are kept in a secure, environmentally controlled environment and an appointment to view these items must be made.

If you cannot find something, please ask at the Library Enquiries Desk where a member of Library staff will be able to help you.
