Using the Library Catalogue and Shelfmarks: About your Library Catalogue

What is the Library Catalogue?

The Library Catalogue lists every book, pamphlet, print copy journal, DVD, media and many other resources in De Montfort University’s libraries and gives you all the information you need to locate and use those resources for your study. The catalogue offers a variety of features that can help you find and use the resources you need. You can also share information about those resources with other users by creating and saving lists of useful items, downloading item details to Refworks, social tagging, public lists and rating resources.

Tip Icon If you want to search full-text journal articles, try using Library Search instead of the Library Catalogue. 

Example of Catalogue page
