Last Updated: Dec 21, 2021     Views: 380

1.)  From the library's homepage, type the name of the book in the SingleSearch field.  To quickly narrow down results, select the "book" tab:2.)  Alternatively, you can do a general search within SingleSearch.  On the left side of the results page, you'll see an area with search facets.  Under CONTENT TYPE, select Book / ebook to narrow down your search results.  By default, ebooks will show at the top.  Scroll down the list to look for physical copies:3.)  Once you've found your book among the search results, check the book's availability, location, and call number in the preview:

4.)  See How do I Read a Call Number? and our library maps to help locate your book within the library.  If you need help, please see someone at the Circulation Desk for assistance.
