This image shows Availability for a print book. To access a print item, find the Call Number, which is a unique series of letters and numbers usually located on the spine of each item. In this example, the call number is HM743.T95 M87 2013.
Next to the call number, you'll see the item's Availability status. If the item is marked as Available, it should be on the shelf in the library.
If you item is marked as Available, follow the steps below to obtain it:
1. Record the Call Number for the item you want.
2. Use the Call Number to find the item on the shelves of the duPont-Ball Library. Most print books are on the top floor of the library. Consult the Library Maps and a chart to identify the precise location of your book's section. Call numbers are arranged in order- start by finding the section that starts with the first letter of your call number, then first letter plus second letter or number, and so on until you get to your item.
3. Bring your item to the front desk on the main floor of the library. Present your Stetson ID to check it out.
There are four options for saving the items you find in OneSearch: Cite, Link, Email, and Save. You can access these options in your items box on the search results page or on the availability panel, as shown below.
Sometimes, you'll find books or articles in OneSearch that the duPont-Ball Library does not have. In this case, you can request to borrow a copy from another library through a service called Interlibrary Loan. There's an Interlibrary Loan request form right inside OneSearch. When you find a source we don't have, just click on the green button labeled Request Item through Interlibrary Loan and fill out the form that opens up.
