"Checking Out" Books
- When you take something home from the Library, we don't say 'rent'; we say "check out"
- To check something out from the Library, take it to the Access Services Desk, just past the scanners at the entrance
- Make sure you bring your Miner Gold Card (your ID card)
How to Get the Thing
- To get your hands on an actual item, you first need to make sure that it is AVAILABLE
- This means that it is not checked out by someone else, damaged, overdue, missing, or otherwise not ready to be taken home with you
- If it's available, you need to know what collection it's located in
- In the example below, the item is located in the Main Stacks
- Don't know where the collection is located in the Library? No problem.
- Simply click on the location
- A description of the location will pop up
- Everything located in the Library has a call number (circled in Orange).
- Every item (book, dvd, governmet document, etc.) has a unique call number
- A call number serves as a street address for an item
- The location guide can be used to determine which floor to look for an item in the Main Stacks, depending on the call number
- If you're trying to access something electronic, open it by clicking the link located next to the arrow NOT the title
