Instructions: How to Find and Use Print Books

Step 1: Locate the book in the library's catalog (aka OSCAR) off the library website

Step 2: Once you find a book with "available" status, use the "Request this Title" or "Request from ARS" button to request it for pickup. 

Look for the "Request This Title" button and click on it.

Step 3: Wait for an email notice from the library indicating your book is ready to pick up from the holds shelf across from the help desk.
