The Library arranges its books according to the Dewey Decimal System.
This system organises subjects into 10 main areas from 000 - 999.
Numbers (classification numbers) are then added before and after the decimal point to identify the different subject areas, for example:
900 = History, Geography and Travel
940 = Europe
942 = England and Wales
942.8 = Northeastern England
942.81 = West Yorkshire
942.819 = Leeds
3 letters are often added to the end of the number. It is always worth taking note of these, as there may be a lot of resources at some numbers e.g. 942.819 THO
