STACK 1: Includes Irish govt. departments, building regulations, statistics, conferences and both semi-state and voluntary groups.
Irish Government departments
These are shelved alphabetically according to dept. and then by year, e.g. Dept. of Defence 1992, Dept. of Defence 1993, Dept. of Education and Science 1992 and so on. If you search the catalogue, the code for each dept. is in the class mark box, e.g. DEPT ARTS. The publications are arranged alphabetically in pamphlet boxes by department and within that by year.
The CSO material is all shelved in a statistics section (including statistical
bulletin series, trade statistics, economic series and censuses).
Semi-state and voluntary groups
Semi-state and voluntary groups are shelved alphabetically in boxes beyond the
govt. depts. If you search the catalogue, the more well known groups have a
specific code in the classmark, e.g. BORD GAIS but others have a MISC and letter
as their classmark.
EPA, NRA, etc. are all shelved in their boxes in the A-Z section.
Local authorities and university publications
These are in the A-Z section under COUN and UNI respectively (apart from Sligo Co. Council which is under SLIGO COUNCIL and Sligo Corporation which is under SLIGO CORPORATION).
These are shelved at C in the A-Z section. If you search the Catalogue, the classmark will be CONF.
