Find Books

The best way to find out if the library has a book is to search the OBIS catalog by title. 

You can also do a keyword search with words from the title and author's name. 
(Summon is great for research of all kinds but if you just want to know if we have a specific title, use OBIS). 

Here are the possible scenarios:

1) We have the book in print and the STATUS in OBIS is "AVAILABLE"

-Great! Use the information about LOCATION and CALL NUMBER to find the book in the stacks (text it to yourself!)

-NOTE: If the the LOCATION in OBIS has the word RESERVE in it, the loan period is short

3) We have the book in print and the STATUS in OBIS is "MISSING" or there is a date in that field

-This means the book is NOT currently available

-Try alternatives like OhioLINK, SearchOhio, or Interlibrary Loan

 

4) We have access to the book online - read on your laptop or phone!
