Service Desk beyond sofas on the ground floor of Fountains Learning Centre

Want to check where things are? Items are stocked by their "Dewey number" – look out for this three-digit number (which may be followed by any number of decimal digits) on an item's page in the Library Catalogue, as well as on a yellow label on the spine of the book itself.

Our floor map can show you where to find resources (organised by Dewey number) as well as other library, print, and IT facilities:

For all other questions, the Service Desk are here to help.
