NCI Library has three different sections of books:
Main Lending (ML)
The largest portion of NCI Library's books are in the Main Lendingsection of the library. These books are available to all NCI Library users to borrow. They are organised first by shelf number (subject area number) and then alphabetically by author's surname.
Desk Reserve (DRES)
Desk reserve books are located behind the library services desk. These books are core texts from a module and can be borrowed for 2 hours at a time and can only be used within the library. Go to a member of staff at the library services desk to borrow a desk reserve.
Our reference books are located on the first bay of shelves in the library (Bay #1). These books cannot be borrowed; however, they are available for use within the library.
