Macquarie University Library uses the Library of Congress Classification scheme to organise books and journals. The most efficient way to locate material in the library is to use MultiSearch, however the following may be useful as a guide when browsing the shelves. 

Browsing the Library shelves can be a very effective way of finding relevant resources. Try browsing around the call numbers below to find interesting titles to extend your research.





Ebooks (or electronic books) are the online equivalent of printed books. They can be read on personal computers, smart phones, tablets or ereaders.

Like the physical books, the ebooks that the library subscribe to are free to use. More and more of the library collection is moving to electronic format so we have created a guide on how to access and use ebooks, which can be accessed here.
