Library & Learning Commons resources

The collection comprises:

  • Course Collection books
  • digitised Course Collection extracts: access via Library Search
  • Course boxes
  • Film collection

Humanities resources at the Hartley Library

  • It is essential to your studies that you use the Humanities resources at Hartley Library in addition to the material at the Library & Learning Commons. The Hartley Course Collection contains Course Collection material for music.
  • You will also find Humanities resources at the Winchester School of Art.

Arrangement of Library & Learning Commons resources

  • Course collection books are kept in our quiet study area. Books which are designated quarto (oversized books) or pamphlets are shelved separately from the main sequence. These are indicated by a prefix before the call number: q = quarto, p = pamphlet.
  • Films are shelved within the Film collection area.
  • Course box resources are held within the main area of the library opposite the loans desk. The boxes are arranged in an alph-numeric sequence based on the course code.
