Professional Studies (West Suffolk College): Books and e-books


Books and eBooks

The University of Suffolk Bury St. Edmunds library provides print and e-book collections to support your course.
All items on your reading list are available in either a print or electronic version. These can be located using the library catalogue

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. Ensure that you limit to "Full text online" when searching Summon, to avoid the printed books in University of Suffolk Ipswich Library.

Useful Classmarks

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,340.3  is shelved before 340.31 which is shelved before 340.2

Within each subject books are shelved alphabetically according to the author or first word of the title, so 340 SMI [Author is Smith] is shelved before 340.5 WHI [Author is White].
