From 5pm on March 18, the Betty & Gordon Moore Library along with the University Library and all Faculty and Departmental Libraries will close to readers until further notice. Please check our FAQs for information on how to access Library services during this time.

The Betty & Gordon Moore Library


Journals may be found on the lower-ground floor of the Library. They are arranged alphabetically by title within their main single- or two-letter (Library of Congress) LC classification. The alphabetic sequence is word-by-word excluding both initial and internal stop words (e.g.; of, for, and, the, und, die, et, la, etc.)

Many journals are shelved in mobile shelving units. Library users are asked to follow the instructions on the safe use of these units at all times - in particular always to check that no-one is using an aisle before closing it.

Major journal classmarks used in the Moore Library are:

GC Oceanography
HA Statistics (see also QA)
Q General science
QA Mathematics
QA75 Computer Science
QB Astronomy & Astrophysics
QC Physics, Geophysics & Meteorology
QD Chemical Sciences
QE Earth Sciences
QH-S Biological & Medical Sciences
T General Technology
TA General & General Civil Engineering
TC Hydaulic & Ocean Engineering
TD Envrionmental Technology & Sanitary Engineering
TE Highway Engineering
TG Bridge Engineering`
TJ Mechanical Engineering
TK Electrical, Electronic & Nuclear Engineering
TL Aeronautical, Astronautical &Automotive Engineering
TN Mining Engineering & Metallurgy

TS Manufacturing Engineering


Again, a small number of titles transferred from the Materials Science Library are shelved separately pending their amalgamation into the main journals sequence.
