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.




Request materials not owned by LVC via Tipasa, LVC's Interlibrary Loan system.  Interlibrary Loan is a service that provides articles/materials you find from other libraries.

Almost every LVC Library database will provide a Looking for Full-Text? link on each result.  If that fails to connect you to full-text, you'll be given an option to Request this Item through LVC Tipasa.

You can also request materials via Interlibrary Loan from the library's homepage.

With Interlibrary Loan, you'll either get a PDF of  the journal or magazine article or a hard copy that will need to be returned.

Allow 2-3 days for an article; allow up to 2 weeks for books or media.
