My book wasn't on the shelf. Now what do I do?


If the book you are looking for is not on the shelf at the location indicated in MNCAT (, and it is not listed as being "Checked out," "On Order," "In Process," "Sent to Binder," "Cataloging," or otherwise, then you are encouraged to request a "Search."

Search requests may be submitted in-person at any library Circulation Desk. This page gives the hours and phone numbers for campus library Circulation Desks:

Note: Unfortunately, due to staffing limitations, we are unable to accept online search requests.
