You've found the book in the LVC Books search.  Now what?  Use the call number to find the book...

In Bishop Library, most of the books are stored on the 2nd or Ground floor.  Using your call number, first figure out what floor your book is on:

Next, using the first two letters (which are alphabetically ordered in the book shelves), get yourself into the area of those two letters.  Finally, using your call number, use the image below to walk through locating your book.



Interlibrary loan is a service that will provide you with information that LVC does not own. 

Request your information via interlibrary loan, or ILL. Most of the library's databases will have an ILL link. 

For books, we'll get you a copy of the book from another library--please allow two weeks for an ILL book to arrive.
