Most of the collection of the School of Design Engineering Library is freely accessible. It is organised by subjects and contains the specialised bibliography required for the degrees taught at the School. There is a cabinet (shelf or set of shelves holding the books on the same subject) for every subject matter.

The key piece of information to locate a book is the code called "call number". It indicates the library, the cabinet and the sequential order of the book within the cabinet, for example P 3-57/254:
