Today’s question for Divinity postgraduate students on the Divinity Approaches to Research course is :
“At what shelfmark would you find the principal collection of books on Islamic Law at New College Library? Use DiscoverEd to help you find the answer, or come into New College Library to explore”
[Example : BJ is the shelfmark for Ethics]
