Books give an overview of a subject and provide information on core concepts and theories. This makes them a good starting point for your assignments. Core books for your subject will be listed on your module reading list. If you have an online reading list on Blackboard or another learning environment, this will show you the copies of the book available from the library. You can also find books by searching FINDit, the Library search engine.
The Dewey Decimal system is a classification system used by libraries to arrange books by subject. Each book is issued a shelfmark number, which is placed on the spine of the book and arranged in numerical order. After the numbers, there are three letters that refer to the author or editor of the book and are in alphabetical order.
Here are some key shelfmarks for your subject area.
|300.72||Social Sciences Research Methods|
|545||Quantitative Analysis (Chemistry)|
