Books may not be on the shelf because they are checked out to someone. Check the record in the library online catalog to see if a book has been checked out and when it is due. If a book you want has not been checked out but is not where it should be, try checking the following places:
- Look on shelves labeled 'Reshelve' near the call number location where your book should be located.
- Look around on tables near the call number location of the book you want; often people gather a number of books and take them to a study table to browse.
- Look near photocopy machines in case someone may been copying pages from the book you want.
If you can't locate the book, go to the Book Check Out/Circulation desk on the first floor and request that library staff search for the book.
