Journals are arranged in alphabetical order.
Medicine books are all arranged by subject according to Dewey's Decimal Classification, the most used classification system in the world.
The shelfmark is made up of figures (each figure corresponding to a definite topic within a subject), of letters (standing for author and title) and of the publication year.
To search the shelves, you must follow first the arithmetical order and then the alphabetical order. Please remember that figures must be read one by one, as in the alphabetical order of a dictionary, and not in a sequence, as if they made up a single number. For instance: books on a shelf will be arranged in the following order: 342, 342.015, 342.01568372, 342.1294.
DVD are kept in special covers with a magnetic lock and placed in a special display.
CD-ROM attached to books are kept in a dedicated chest. For consultation and loan, ask the Loans Office.
For further information you can ask the library staff, especially the aide students.
