Locating books on the shelves

image of a bookshelfThe Library uses the Dewey Decimal Classification scheme (Dewey for short) to arrange books and other resources on the shelves so you can locate them easily. We're going to show you how to use Dewey to find a book at any Library site.

How to find and access theses?

You can find further information on theses held at the University of Manchester and elsewhere on our theses guide.





Doctoral/Research Theses

Electronic versions of many open-access University of Manchester research theses, submitted from the 2010 session onwards, are available on Pure, the University of Manchester’s internal repository.

Using Google Books

It is worthwhile carrying out a search on Google Books to see if a book is available to view online.

If you have a reading list for your course and the books are in use by other students, you can check to see if it has been fully or partially digitised by Google.

Inter-Library Loans service

If you find that we don’t hold a book, report, journal article or conference paper that you need, you can use our Inter-Library Loans service.
