To find a specific book, you must first look it up in the Catalog to see if we have it and if it is available. The Catalog will give you information on the book's location, call number & status.

You need to take note of where the book is located. There are 10 different locations within the 3 floors of the library. STACKS means the book is in the library's circulating collection, and could be on any of the 3 floors.

Call Number
You need to write down the entire call number.  For example, PN1995.9.U64 H65 2003. The call number represents the specific address of a book on the shelf.

You need to make sure the status is Available (if it is checked out you will see a due date).
