3. After selecting the right book, the catalog will show you the book’s catalog record (picture below).

4. Before venturing out into the library to find the book, look for these 3 things on the record to help you find the book easier:

  1. Shelving Location: Where the book is located in the library.
  2. Call Number: The alpha-numeric code that tells you where the book is on the shelf (read the first number as a whole number, in this instance it’s 305).
  3. Availability: If the book is available for check-out it will say Available in green type. If the book is Checked-out or Lost the writing in the Availability column will be red type.
