How can I find out where an item is kept?

When you enter the details of the item that you want on the catalogue it will display a call number, which is a code that tells you where the item is shelved.

The call number will usually look something like these examples:

TK 2380.45 GAR  

306.47 GEL

B OCEAN (Physical) Kna

Although the codes look different, they work in much the same way: the combinations of letters and numbers gives a location based on the subject content of the item.

There are floor plans that specify where particular sequences of items are kept and items are arranged in alphabetical/numerical order within each sequence.
