Books & eBooks
The Ipswich library provides print and e-book collections to support Construction and Engineering.
All items on your reading list are available in either a print or electronic version.
This guide provides you with useful shelf marks, search strategies and links to reading lists.
You can also find a variety of additional wider reading by browsing the library shelves or accessing Summon.
The shelfmark (or classmark) will tell you where to find an item on the library shelves. Look out for the shelfmark on the library catalogue record. We use the Dewey system which works like this:
Books are shelved numerically digit by digit according to the number on the spine label, 612.3 is shelved before 612.31 which is shelved before 614.2
Within each subject books are shelved alphabetically according to the author or first word of the title, so 616.5 SMI [Author is Smith] is shelved before 616.5 WHI [Author is White].
