Having difficulty finding books on the open shelves?



Each book in the library has a classmark.

This is a series of numbers and letters on the spine labels of the library book. These are designed to ensure books on a similar subject and, here in the UL, of a similar size, are located in a similar place in the library.

In iDiscover the classmark is given in brackets after the physical location:

The classification scheme used in the UL for the majority of monographs on the open shelves is unique to the UL and known as the ‘three-figure’ classification scheme.  It is described below:

To see the subject stem most relevant to your research click here.

Books in size ‘a‘ are now seldom found on the open shelves. This is to free up more space for size ‘b‘ and ‘c‘ books which are the most popular sizes.

Books published before 1900 should be requested in the Rare Book Reading Room and in some classes books published between 1900 and 1950 should be ordered in the Reading Room.  If this is the case, it will be stated in the catalogue entry.

So in summary:

Staff will be pleased to advise. (Please ask staff in Reading Room or contact:

International review of environmental and resource economics

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : International review of environmental and resource economics.

From the Now Publishers website for the journal:

“Environmental and resource economics has become a broad topic, making connections with many other subdisciplines in economics as well as the natural and physical sciences. It has also experienced a significant growth in research such that the literature is exploding in terms of the number of topics addressed, the number of methodological approaches being applied and the sheer number of articles being written. Coupled with the high degree of specialization that characterizes modern academic research, this proliferation of topics and methodologies makes it impossible for anyone, even those who specialize in the subject, to keep up with developments in the field.

“The International Review of Environmental and Resource Economics is designed to fill this niche by publishing state-of-the-art review articles by top specialists in their fields who have made substantial contributions to the area that they are surveying.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 0 (2007) to present.

Review of Behavioral Economics

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : REVIEW OF BEHAVIORAL ECONOMICS.

From the Now Publishers website for the journal:

“The Review of Behavioral Economics (ROBE) seeks to extend and develop the study of behavioral economics. The journal encourages a transdisciplinary and pluralistic perspective in the tradition of the late Herbert A. Simon, long recognized as the founder of modern behavioral economics, for whom the concepts of bounded rationality and satisficing were based on psychological, cognitive, and computational limits of human knowledge and behavior, the decision-making environment, and the evolutionary capabilities of the human being. ROBE sees behavioral economics embedded in a broader behavioral science that includes most of the social sciences, as well as aspects of the natural and mathematical sciences.

“The journal is open to a variety of approaches and methods, both mainstream and non-orthodox, as well as theoretical, empirical, and narrative. While empirical work may rely on laboratory or field experiments, published data, case studies, surveys, or simulations, we encourage authors to emphasize the strength and importance of relationships observed and statistically analyzed in their data. Discussion of policy implications of any findings is encouraged.

“All papers are subject to a double-blind review process, but final decisions will be made by the editors and not by the referees. The journal seeks to publish cutting edge research that will change our understanding of human behavior in its economic and broader social contexts. We appreciate that some of the most innovative and important papers can leave some readers (and referees) in disagreement with their arguments or findings.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2014) to present.
