Translation Studies

A subject guide for the UCL Centre for Translation Studies (CenTraS) at SELCS

Books and e-books

The Translation collection is on the first floor of the Main Library, at the end of the North Corridor. The collection covers all aspects of Translation Studies.

To locate books, remember to use Explore, the library catalogue. Explore will give details of the library site and collection in which you can find the book.

The books in the Translation collection are classified according to the Library of Congress Classification Scheme. The shelfmark for a book generally consists of a subject (indicating a collection within the library) followed by letters and numbers; e.g. TRANSLATION P308.C667 for a book about computers and translation. 

The library catalogue is the principal tool to find books, journals and other materials (either in print or in electronic format) held in UCL libraries. On the catalogue, you will find the details of the location of the materials you are looking for: library site, collection and shelfmark.

Other collections

How can you tell if a book is available online?

On UCL Explore, you can look at the results of your search to quickly discover if a book is available in print or/and online: View Online means that the book is available electronically, while Available means that the book is available in print. In some cases a book is available both in print and online.
