You can find books and all other kinds of library material by using thelibrary catalogue. You can search by author; book or journal title; or keyword (subject). When the book you want comes up in your Search Results screen, click on Details. This should take you to the Item Location screen.

Reference reading list (RRL) books These are also on open shelves but are for use in the library only. They have a red dot at the top of their spine and a green label inside saying "for use in the library only".
