How can I tell from the Library catalogue if a book is held in Special Collections?

The location field for the volume will be listed on the QCat Library catalogue as “McClay Floor 1 (Special Collections)”. To limit the results of a Library catalogue search to material in Special Collections only, enter your search term and limit results to “McClay Floor 1 (Special Collections)” using the Location tab on the left-hand side of the results page.
If you are working from the shelf mark only, any of the following prefixes indicate that the volume you require is held in Special Collections: h, w, y, x, e, t, 5Z, SC, Percy, Daly, MacD, Moore. Please visit our Books, Bibliographies and Journals web page for additional information.
