Goldsmiths Library has a large collection of both print books and eBooks (accessible from home using your username and password). Use Library Search to search for books by title, author, keywords and more. Watch the video below for guidance on how to search for print books.
There is also a growing collection of e-books listed on Library Search. These can be searched for in the same way as print books but you can use the drop down menu to just select electronic books. You can also search for e-books directly on the Dawsonera database (see link below). For more information on accessing eBooks please see the LibGuide to eBooks.
Books are arranged on the shelves using the Dewey Decimal Classification system (000-999). Below is a list of the most relevant classmarks for History.
Remember to use Library Search in addition to browsing the shelves, as books can be classified in different ways (e.g. books on the history of music will be in the music section at 780.9).
