Check the location of a single item

After searching the catalog (by title, topic, author, etc.), click in some locations by the item you want. If you are logged in, this may also say at one of my preferred locations.

You will then see which library locations have the item, along with its collection, call number and status.


Limit all results to certain locations

On the left of your result list, look for Available now...  If you don't see this, it might be because you're on a mobile device, which displays the catalog different from when you're using a desktop or laptop computer. First click Filter these results:

Filter these results button.

Click More locations... 

Check the box next to the location(s) you want. Your results will update to show only currently available items at the location(s) you specified.

For more advanced options, see How can I browse the catalog by location?

Please note: Sometimes the item is listed as Available but when you go to the Library, it's not on the shelf. Ask a staff member; we can check if the item was recently returned and awaits reshelving in a staff area or on a cart. You can also call the location for a telephone hold. We will check the shelf before you arrive (please allow three hours). If you place a hold online, we will not search for the book until the next day that location is open. Learn more about placing holds.
