Useful Call Numbers for Osteopathy

Call Numbers are used to help find books in the Library. Books are arranged on the library shelves according to subject. Every subject has its own call number, eg. Human Anatomy has the call number QM23. The call number will be found on the spine of each book.  Look at the floor plans around the library to identify particular sections. There are also maps and  floor plans on the ISS website.

Books specifically on Osteopathy are to be found at RZ241-RZ342. Many texts used by osteopaths will also be found in RM701 –RM725 (manual therapy), or RC 1200 to RC1236  (Sports Science). These are all on Level 1 of the East Wing. Anatomy books are located on the floor above (Level 2).  Use iFind, the library catalogue, to find the Call Number for specific titles and subject areas. 

There are also many e-books which you can read online. These will all be listed in IFindwith links to online full-text.
