Book Finder – Find Your Books…Fast!

Do you struggle with finding books in the stacks?  Help is here!  The Library has developed a new web app called Book Finder, which maps books and other items in our catalogue system to their location in the Library.  This app has both desktop and mobile interfaces.

Alternatively, visit our mobile site

If you need help understanding call numbers, please visit the following webpage, or watch this video.

Book Finder will tell you on which floor the item is located, the corresponding shelf number, e.g. A-18, and the item’s specific call number.  The shelf number will direct you to the specific shelf where your book is kept – look for this information on the sides of the shelving.  You will still need the call number to find the book on the shelves.
