How do I find the dewey number for a book?

The Dewey Decimal system is a classification system used by libraries to arrange books via subject. Each book is issued a shelfmark/call number, usually found on the book spine, and placed in numerical order on the library shelves. 

Under the textbook tab within each subject on the Learning Services Subject Resources webpages, you can find a list of call numbers for each area.

You can also complete a search on Discover More for more specific titles and to access any eBooks on your chosen topic. 

If you would like help finding a book within the Catalyst library, please ask at the Catalyst Helpdesk.
