The Monash libraries use the Dewey Decimal Classification scheme to organise books and journals. The most efficient way to locate material in the library is to use Search (the library catalogue), however the following may be useful as a guide when browsing the shelves.
|016.45||Italian language - Bibliography|
|016.85||Italian literature - Bibliography|
|035.1||Encyclopedias and dictionaries, Italian|
|453||Italian language - Dictionaries|
|455||Italian language - Grammar|
|759.5||Italian fine arts|
|850.03||Italian literature - Dictionaries|
|914.5||Italy - Description and travel|
|945||Italy - History|
To find books and other items by subject in the library catalogue use Advanced Search, select in subject from the first drop down menu and enter relevant terms.
Alternatively, do a Basic search and refine by subject using the Refine search groups on the left-hand side of the search results screen.
The following are examples of subject headings:
Call numbers are a series of predetermined numbers and letters allocated to items held by the library. They permit the arrangement of items dealing with the same subjects to file near each other. Call number labels are stuck to the spine or front of each item.
