How to Search for Books

How to locate print books in the library

Look at the LOCATION field in the catalogue record.  In the example below, the location fields indicate that there are two copies:  one in the Davis Room and another in the Stacks.  Books in the Davis room can not be checked out, because it is the university's archive.  The Book in the stacks collection can be checked out so you would go to the third floor and find the call number to locate the book.  See below for borrowing policies and fines.
