Useful shelf marks

Material in the library is organized into subject areas. Numbers are assigned according to the Dewey Decimal System to identify subject areas. Subject headings appear alongside the numbers on the end of the library shelves. You may find the following particularly useful:- 

370 Education (includes teacher training)
371 Schools and schools activities (includes teaching and special needs education)
372 Primary education (includes subject teaching at primary level)
373 Secondary education (NB for subject specific teaching at secondary level, check the subject area within the library, e.g. secondary mathematics teaching is shelved within mathematics at 510.7)
374 Adult education (includes further education)


There is also a Teaching Practice section in Y Fforwm. This is where you will find picture books, junior fiction and other resources for use within schools. The non-fiction stock is organized by shelf mark just like the main stock, but with TP prefixing the number. 

Journals & e-resources

Current Education journals can be found on the second floor of Y Fforwm Library. Recent back copies are also stored here. All journals are for reference use only.
