  7. You can also see the location, call number, and whether it is available at the library.
  8. If you would like to see the book, write down the location and call number and find it on the library shelf.

Did you know that you can limit your search to a particular campus?

When searching for a book, look to the right of the search box.  There is a box that says "All Campuses."  Click on the down arrow on this box and select the campus you want to search. 

Did you know that you can request a book from another campus?

Just fill out a form at your campus library and it will be sent to your campus. (Takes a few days to arrive.)
