Warburg Institute Library Research Guide to the Classification System

How to navigate the classification system and the stacks

This guide includes all of the classmarks, shelf locations and links to the shelf list for browsing in the library.

To search in more detail for authors, titles, subjects, keywords and ISBN numbers, go to the Library Catalogue search page.

(The search box on this page searches only this site, and not the library catalogue)

How the classification system works:

The first letter of the classmark of a book indicates the floor on which it is to be found.

The sequence of classmarks on the shelves does not follow the order of the alphabet.
