Core journals for ACP students:
A class number (or class mark) is the series of numbers and letters found on the spine of a resource to indicate where to find it in the Library.
Books about the same subject have the same class number, so will be located in the same area of the Library - this means that once you know the class number for the topic you are looking for, you can use it to find a range of relevant resources.
As a starting point, here are some useful class numbers for Health:
|Class number||General subject|
|362.1||Public health policy|
|610-620||Medicine and Health|
|613||Health promotion and personal health|
|614||Forensic medicine, incidence, preventative medicine|
|615||Pharmacology and therapeutics|
