Finding and borrowing a book

This playlist of videos includes guidance on finding a book on the Library catalogue, locating it on the shelves and borrowing it. We also explain what a Call Number is and how to access e-books via the catalogue.

This guidance is also available to read on the Searching Enterprise for a specific book or e-book page.
