During the reshelving operation visitors are 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.
