Does OPAC show me the location of the book I want?

Yes. After searching, access the results list and click on the desired record. In the "Number of copies" table, you have information about the number of copies, the location, the call number (label on the spine of the documents) and the status of the book.

The call number is an alphanumeric code, made up of numbers and letters that allows you to locate the book on the shelf.

 

How to locate the book on the shelf?

The classification of a book reflects its subject matter and the respective colour label on the spine:

The shelves are organised in alphanumeric order, starting at A (floor 2) and ending at Z (floor 3).

Example:

For books that are located under "Instituto Superior de Economia e Gestão ISEG (iseg)"

Call number: HB171.5.K56 1976

 

HB

171.5

K56

1976

Subject

Author

Date

 

First locate the floor of the letters HB (floor 2). Once the area is identified, the book is then located on the shelf.

At the top of each shelf there is a plate with the extreme call number (first and last) of that shelf. Once the shelf is identified, just follow the numbering of the subject, author and date. The order is alphabetical and the numbering is increasing.

When the call number is more complex: HC260.S9.E36 1976 

HC

260.S9

E36

1976

Subject

Author

Date

 The procedure is equivalent, locate the HC then, inside the HC the number 260, and then the S9.

For books located in "Instituto Superior de Economia e Gestão ISEG-Deposito", ask the library staff for the book.

 

How can I identify books that are in Deposit?

Books that are on deposit are identified in the search in the "Copies" table, under the "Location" tab.
