Finding books

Each book is given a classification number according to its subject. Churchill College uses the Dewey classification system.

Most books in Art, Literature, Classics, Biography and History (Dewey 700–999) are housed upstairs in the Bracken Library (floorplan).

Books in other subject areas (Dewey 000–699) together with the Reference Section are housed downstairs in the Bracken Reading Room, Bracken Reading Room Extension and Bracken Reading Room Gallery (floorplan). The catalogue will tell you where to find any particular book.
