A new section of material has now been created in the Social Science Library: the Statistics and Reports collection. These items comprise around 3000 statistical series, annual reports and other reference material previously located in the same sequence as our books. In order to create more space for new books, we have moved the statistics and reports to their own separate section, in the north-eastern part of the Library’s collections, between the Dissertations and Theses and the Core Collection of Print Journals, which now occupies a reduced amount of space in this area.
The Statistics and Reports remain arranged using the Library of Congress classification system. However, as they are now in a separate part of the Library, additional text has been added to the records of all titles now kept in this section, as shown in the image below.
Over the coming months, the items will also be labelled with an additional spine label to indicate that they belong to this section of the Library.
