General questions

Where can I view films in the library?

There is a viewing room with stations to view films on the 4th floor. It is open whenever the library is open.


I can't find a book on the shelves - what do I do?

If you are searching for a book that shows available in the catalog, but is not on the shelf, check with the Main Circulation Desk to see if it is on a sorting shelf or a book truck in advance of being returned to the stacks. If the item is still missing, fill out a hold/trace form so that we can search for the missing item. If we cannot find the item after a week of searching, we should be able to obtain a copy through Interlibrary Loan, if necessary.
