LVC Books searches books--ebooks and print--that LVC owns. WorldCat is database that searches 77,000 worldwide library catalogs. Books found in WorldCat, may require you to use ILL/Interlibrary Loan/Tipasa to get copy.
You've found the book in the Library Catalog search. Now what? Use the call number to find the book...
In Bishop Library, most of the books are stored on the upper level or the lower level. Using your call number, first figure out what level your book is on:
A - PR
Located on the upper level
PS - Z
Located on the lower level
Located on the north and east sides of the upper level
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, ILL, or Tipasa, is a service that will provide you with books that LVC does not own.
Most of the library's databases will provide a Looking for Full Text? link on results that don't provide PDF full-text. If that Looking for Full-Text? link fails, you'll see a button for Request this Item through LVC Tipasa.
You can also place an ILL request from the library's homepage. Via interlibrary loan, we'll borrow the book from another library for you and will notify you via email when your book arrives.
How long does it take?
Books will take a bit longer (they have to come through the mail)--allow two weeks.
