Library Resource Guides: Finding books

Books at ANMF Vic Branch Library

The Library has an excellent collection of print books to support nursing and midwifery teaching and learning.

What's the Dewey?

The library collection is sorted by Dewey Decimal Classifcation, which organises materials according to their subject area. This means closely related books will be physically close to each other on the shelves. To help you easily locate resources, library staff have created a postcard that lists the different DD classifcations relating to your different subject areas.
