The King’s library has four main collections: Main Holdings, Reference,
Media, and Reserve.
- Main Holdings
The Main Holdings section is the largest section and all books
within it are available for circulation. It follows the Library of
Congress cataloging system.
Reference materials do not circulate but a patron may use Reference
materials within the library. This section also follows the Library of
Congress cataloging system.
The media section circulates and is arranged alphabetically by
title. This section includes courses on CD or DVD.
Reserve items are materials that professors ask to be removed from
the shelf to not circulate. As such, all students in that professor’s
cours(es) can access them. They are kept behind the circulation desk and
students may request them from the librarian. Use is generally limited
to two hours within the library.
