Print journals are shelved in compact shelving units in the Library Sub-basement. Journals are arranged alphabetically by title, with ‘A’ located nearest the entrance. Signs on the ends of the aisles indicate the range of titles contained within each set of shelves.

Print journals are reference only and cannot be removed from the Library building, however you are welcome to consult them in any area of the Library. There is also a photocopier/scanner in the Sub-basement where you can copy/scan sections of journals subject to copyright restrictions.

The compact shelving which houses the print journals is organised into 4 blocks (or ‘ranges’) separated by green pillars. You may need to move shelves in order to find the journals you need.

To move the Sub-basement shelves follow the instructions posted on each of the shelf-ends.

In the interests of safety:

  • Always ensure that the open aisle is empty before attempting to move the shelves.
  • Do not enter the aisle until the shelves have come to a halt.
  • To stop a shelf that is in motion, place your foot against the bottom of the moving unit.
