  • show the loan period for items (2 hours, 3 weeks, semester, etc)
  • allow you to request an item that is currently signed out to another library user

Signing in will also let you access your account information. You can:

What does "Available at" mean?

In Quick Find if the item is "Available at", it means it is a physical item in the library and available to loan.

How do I search for only newer materials?

In Quick Find go to Advanced Search. You'll see there is a "Publication date" drop down menu which allows you to select a time frame (for example specific date range, last 2 years, last 5 years, last 10 years). This will limit your search results to the specified time span.
