Finding books and e-books

Search CityLibrary Search by title, keyword or author to locate books and e-books. 

To find a book in the Library, make a note of the shelfmark (e.g. 345.4105 HUN) and match this to the spine of the book. Books are arranged according to the Dewey Decimal system, and are in numerical order.

To access e-books, select the e-book link and enter your City username and password.
