After you search and find a book in the catalog, you need three pieces of information to locate your material.
The location tells you which library or part of the library where the book is located. There are many different libraries on campus (Math, Journalism, etc.), and each library has its own location code. There are also special areas with their own codes, like Reference in Ellis.
2. Call Number
The call number tells you exactly where the book is on the shelf. Books are arranged in the library by subject, and every book has it's own specific place on the shelf. Write this number down or use the "text call number" feature to be able to find the book on the shelf.
The status tells you if the book is currently on the shelf and available to check out. For example, if a book is, "NOT CHECKED OUT," that means it is on the shelf and available. If the status is "DUE," the book is currently checked out until the date listed.
