Locate this book: How to find what you need more easily in the Main Library

Reading Time: < 1 minute

So you’ve checked and you know the book is in, but now comes the big challenge – actually finding it! Here to help is the Library’s ‘Locate this book’ feature.

You can use ‘Locate This Book’ in Library Search to see the exact floor and shelf location of any book in Main Library.

The Locate a book feature will will open an interactive map of the Main Library clearly displaying the book’s shelf location highlighted in red. The map will show you the specific floor and shelf area where the book is located, as well as other facilities such as toilets, stairs and PCs to help you orientate yourself when looking for the book

And whats more, if you’re using ‘Locate This Book’ on desktop, click the QR code icon on the bottom right of your screen to generate a QR code. Scan the QR code with your mobile device to open the map, so you can use it when moving around the building.

Happy book hunting!

At the moment, this service is only available in Main Library For more information see the Library website.
