Reshelving collections Singel 425 started

Situation as of 9 May

9 May 2017

After the reshelving of the books at P.C. Hoofthuis Library, the next few months the Humanities collections in the University Library Singel will also be reshelved according to the Library of Congress Classification (LCC). We expect the project to be finished by the end of September.

During the reshelving operation visitors will be faced with various shelving systems. In the catalogue you’ll always find the current shelf number of a book or journal. Books with old spine labels will remain in their old place until they have been assigned a new shelf number.

The situation regarding the new Humanities shelving system can be found in the schedule below, which is regularly updated.
