Finding Resources

Missing Materials

You can ask any Library staff member to help you find a book.

If the material is not on the shelf, and not checked out in the online catalog, stop at the Desk for assistance. The material could be in the process of being re-shelved. A search for the material can be requested at the Desk. Users will be notified of the status of the search request within two weeks.

In-Process Materials

Materials with “In Process” status are still in the manual processing stage and will usually be available within 4 days. During normal business hours, you can request for materials to be retrieved by the Desk staff and processed for checkout unless the item has a requester notification.

Materials with a “1 copy being processed” message have not been cataloged or processed and may be retrieved by Library staff.

Recreational materials, including DVDs, are available when all processing is completed.

Materials in Storage

You can request materials that are “In Storage” to be retrieved for you at the Desk.
