Can't Find a Book?

Can’t Find a Book?

First:

  1. Make sure you are looking in the correct library. Check the library location.
  2. Check the call number.
  3. Make sure the book is not already checked out. Check the status.

Options:

  1. Look for it yourself
    • Look for the reshelving area and check there. Reshelving areas are usually against walls and are marked RESHELVING.
    • Go to the shelving room of the 4th floor of Ellis and ask for assistance: Map or Video Directions.
  2. Ask for help at the Reference Desk.
  3. Request the Library locate the book and hold if for you at Circulation. This might take several days. Follow the UMLD directions.
  4. See if book is available on another campus (MOBIUS) and request the book be sent to you.
