Where are the books?

Most books covering Tourism and Tourism Management are upstairs on the 1st floor of the library – the shelfmark number is 338.4791. However, some books are located in the Geography section and are numbered 910.

Within these broad categories, more specific topics will have their own classification number so it’s always a good idea to use the library catalogue. You may also find useful books under other subjects such as Geography or Environmental Science.

You will find Business and Management books in a different area  – numbered 658.

Some large textbooks (Quartos) are shelved separately in a separate area on the 1st floor – ask if you’re not sure where this is.

Or, if you’re looking for ebooks, there are instructions here.
