Book Collection at the Webster University Thailand Library:

The main WUT library book collection is housed in the room to the right of the entrance according to the Library of Congress Classification System. Each book is assigned a letter and number combination according to its primary subject and shelved in alpha-numeric order along with other books about the same subject.

 

How do I find books?

Browse the shelves. At the end of each shelf is a tag listing the subjects of the books on that shelf. Check the Online Public Access Catalog on the OPAC Computer at the entrance of the Library. You can use keywords to search for the resources that you need in our library’s database system “Athenaeum,” as well as by author, title and subject. You can also ask for help at the Library´s Circulation Desk.

Reference Works in WUT Library:

Reference materials, such as dictionaries, almanacs, atlases, etc., are located on shelves just on the left side of the central zone of the room.

Like all of the main library collection, reference materials are shelved according to the Library of Congress Classification System .
