How to Find Physical Resources in the Library: Item Locations

Where is That Location in the Library?

Finding Locations in the Catalog

When you are searching the catalog, you might notice that different items are listed as being in different places. You can usually find this location in the "Availability" section when you click on an item in the catalog to view the full record. There are several clues which tell you the location of the item in the library. It is listed under call number and shelf location. The call number itself might have three letters before the rest of the call number which also points to the location. See the example below.

Where in the library are each of these locations?

Each of these locations are marked below with yellow sections highlighting the portion of the map where you would find the particular section you need. 

Each section is expandable. Looking for Reference Books? Click that section below and a map will be revealed to you!
