The Monash libraries use the Dewey Decimal Classification scheme to organise books and journals. We call these numbers 'call or shelf' numbers. The most efficient way to locate material in the Library is to use the Library's Search and limit the result to books or journals. You may want to browse in the print collection at these numbers to find material that is brought together on a topic.
You can browse online as well. Find some relevant books using a keyword search, look for the most common call number attached to the books and put the call number in the Library's Search.
It is important that you note down all of the call number, and which part of the Monash collection the item is held in. Then you need to find each part of the number in turn.
For example to find the book: The European Union : politics and policies, John McCormick, call number 341.2422 M131E 2008:
341.2422 M131E 2008
1. Locate the first three digits.
2. Locate any digits following the decimal point (Note decimals: 341.1 is after 341.05).
3. Look for the letter M, then the next set of numbers/letter.
4. The final four digits denote the year of the book.
If you can't find an item:
Type one or more terms, click Go, and then limit result set using the facets in the left panel.
Search looks for all the search terms unless OR or NOT (Boolean Operators) are placed between terms.
Wildcard characters permit variant endings and spellings to be searched.
Search indexes not only the library collections of books, eBooks, theses, periodicals, and audio-visual materials, but also a limited number of full-text electronic journal databases.
In order to access the complete range of electronic journals to which Monash University Library subscribes, it is neccessary to search in subject-specific databases.
