The best place to search for print books in the Jay Sexter Library's collection is in the Library Catalog. When searching for print resources in the catalog, look for items with a 3-column table under the title. These are physical items housed inside the library.

When you find physical materials in the catalog, pay attention to the information contained within the table.

physical book record


Location - this tells you which collection the item is in

Items marked Nevada Reserve are behind the Reference Desk and must be retrieved for you by a library employee.  These items cannot leave campus and only check out for 2 hours.

Items marked Nevada are on the regular library shelves, also called the "stacks." You can access these resources yourself, but please check them out if you want to take them home or outside of the library. These items circulate for 7 days.

Call # - this tells you where the item is on the shelf

To keep library materials organized and easy to find, they are given call numbers made up of letters and numbers. Call numbers will help you locate library items when they are shelved in the regular stacks and you can get them on your own.

Status - this tells you if the item is available for checkout

Items that are available for checkout will say Available in this box. Items that are checked out will have a due date.
