Shelf browsing
The collection of works on administrative law for the jurisdictions of the British Isles & five common law jurisdictions are on Level 2, with K (or Moys) shelf marks.
The works on English & Welsh/UK law are shelved first. Then works on the treatment of the law by the other jurisdictions follow, country by country. In these cases, the third line of the shelf mark indicates which "foreign" jurisdiction the work is about - using the following codes - A8 Australia, C1 Canada, Ireland I5, N4 New Zealand, S3 Scotland, U4 United States.
