Our library works on the open shelf system enabling you to reach the books directly. The books in the open shelves are topically sorted in the book hall according to LC classification method. To find the book you are looking for, you should follow these steps:
- Through the catalog search computers in the library; you can search author name, book name, publisher, topic, or keyword areas.
- To get the book, you can go to the shelves with the classification and location numbers of the books appearing on the screen as a result of your search.
Example of LC number for the book: "Exchange rates and international finance", Laurence S. Copeland / Financial Times, 2008
The first part of the LC number "HG" represents the category of the book by its topic. In the LC system, the first letter H stands for Social Science class. Each subsequent letter indicates next level of sub categories of the main topic. In the given example G stands for Finance, 3821 indicates sub categories included between 3810-4000 (Foreign exchange, International finance, International monetary system), C78 indicates the first letter of authors surname, 2008 indicates book publication year.
- Please do not reshelf the books you take from the shelves, just leave them on the desks near the shelves so that we reshelf them correctly. This will help you to find the books the next time you go to the shelf.
- For the materials that are not on the shelves they are supposed to be, please see the staff at the Check Out Desk.
