If you would like to read a book that we don't have here at Leeds Beckett, you could try one of the following options:
The Library arranges its books according to the Dewey Decimal System. This system organises subjects into 10 main areas from 000 - 999. 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 from the author's name are often added to the end of the number e.g. 942.819 THO. This helps with identification when there are a lot of resources at the same number.
You will find all of these on the 2nd floor of the Sheila Silver Library.
