Where are the Drama and Theatre books?

The catalogue record for each title will give you the Class Number of the book, how long you can borrow it for, and whether it is Available (ie. on the shelf).  Use the library map to find the correct floor and zone.  The books are arranged in numerical order. Signs at the end of each bay of books let you know the class number range for that bay.
