How can I find a book on the shelves in the library?


Go to the library homepage and choose the "Find Books and Media" tab. This search includes all print and ebooks. Once you have your initial results, look on the left side of the page to narrow your results (e.g.  print book, ebook, date published). Select your book and copy down the call number!  That's what you'll need to find the book once you're in the library.  (Ebooks don't have call numbers since you simply view them online.)

Using the call number, you can find a book on the shelves. If the call number starts with A-Q, it's upstairs. If it starts with R-Z, it's downstairs on the lower level.   Ask at the Access Services Desk for help.

A screenshot of a book and call number is linked below if you want to see an example.
