Can't find your book?
Book not on the shelf? Here's what to do next:
- check the reshelving areas near the large digital screens
- check the status in Library Search - if the book you are looking for is out on loan, you may place a hold on it
- check the location in Library Search- not all books are in the Main collection: look out for other locations such as the High Use, the Law Library, and so on
- your book may be slightly out of sequence - have a good look along the shelf or even on the shelves above and below
If you have looked for an item over several days without success, please let us know at Service Enquiries on Barr Smith Library Level 3 (or at the Library desk in the Branch libraries) so that staff can start a search.
If you are not sure what call numbers are all about, have a look at our help page Locating material in the Barr Smith Library.
