Books and e-books

The Philosophy Collection is located along the South corridor on the first floor of the Main Library in the Wilkins building. 

The Classics Collection is off the North corridor and contains works about Classical Studies generally but also Greek and Latin language and literature.

The library catalogue is the main tool to find books, journals and other materials (either in print or online) held in UCL libraries. On the catalogue, you will find the location details of the materials you are looking for: Library, Collection and Shelfmark.

The books are arranged according to the Garside Classification system, here is further information about the organisation in the Philosophy Collection and the Classics Collection.

For further help with finding, using and citing e-books, take a look at our Electronic books (e-books) Guide.
