- Browsing Storage (Sydney) by Dewey number
Books in Storage (Sydney) are arranged by a non-Dewey running number. However, most of them can be browsed in the catalogue by a call number search. For example, if you want to browse mathematics, do a call number search on the Dewey number 510 and limit to Storage (Sydney). You can browse on more than the first three digits of the Dewey number, such as 331.12 (labour market), 617.9677 (anaesthesia in ophthalmology). This is a useful tool in discovering the content of Storage (Sydney). If you need a more sophisticated search than this, the advanced keyword search provides a range of options which can be combined to successfully find resources on a topic.
