It is the second week of our new weekly feature, “Monday Morning’s Frequently Asked Question (FAQ).” All of these FAQs and their answers can be found on the Biomedical Library web site. Our goal is to make our blog readers more familiar with the Biomedical Library, its services, and policies.
This week’s question is:
“Where are the books, journals, and reserve materials located in the Biomedical Library?”
Use the UCLA Library Catalog and locate the call number for the item. The UCLA Library Catalog lets you know what books and journal titles we have at UCLA. You may search by author, title word, subject, or keyword.
If you have a call number for the book or journal title, visit Shelving Locations by Call Number. If you are looking for books on a particular subject, visit Shelving Locations by Subject.
Books are shelved in call number order on stack levels 8, 9, 10, and 11. Books covering the history of medicine are located on stack level 9.
Journals are arranged in alphabetical order by title and are assigned a call number beginning with “W1.” Bound journal volumes are on stack levels 7, 6, 5, 3, 2, and 1. Recent unbound journals are located in the Current Journal Reading Room on the main floor of the library.
Reserve materials are shelved at the Circulation Desk. To retrieve these materials, please bring a call number to the Circulation Desk or inquire with staff. Course reserve materials that have been requested by instructors may be located by using the Course Reserves tab on the UCLA Library Catalog screen. All year and Class Reserve material circulate for two hours and can be taken overnight if checked out the last hour the library is open. Electronic reserve materials can be accessed online.
For more information, see About Course Reserves.
Please see Bruin OnLine for information on how to access UCLA materials from home.
