I found an item in your online catalog, but where is it on the shelves?

When you find an item in the catalog, click on its title to be taken into the item's record. On this page, you can see the current location for each item, as well as the item's call number. If you're not sure where to begin looking, jot the call number down and take it to a librarian. They will help you locate the item, and may even give you a brief tour of the library if you're interested!

If you're curious: Librarians use codes (Dewey Decimal!) on the books and in the catalog to figure out where each item should be shelved. If the code has numbers in it, it's nonfiction. If it has only words, it is fiction or a biography. If it has a 'J' it is a children's item. 'E' stands for picture book, and DVDs say 'DVD.' Audiobooks say 'CD' and Music CDs say 'MUS.' In our libraries, we try to shelve all like items together, so that it's easier for you to find what you're looking for!
