First, make sure the item says it is available and take note of the campus(es) where it is located.

If the item is at your campus, take note of the location (stacks, DVD, etc.) and write down the entire call number. The call number is a set of letters and numbers that tells you exactly where the item is in our stacks (on our shelves). Items are arranged on our shelves from A - Z using Library of Congress classification. For books, the call number label is usually on the spine (the part facing toward you on the shelf).

Check out the video below for a walk-through of how Call Numbers work. If you have any trouble, ask the nearest library staff member!

If the item is not at your campus, you can request it by looking it up in the Library's Content System, then using the Request It link in the items record (you will be prompted to log in using your GTC4me username and password).
