Library Locations

Using the terms below, roll the browser’s cursor over the location for which you want directions.

For example, choosing biology will display a floor map of the library with the location of the shelves with the biology books and materials. Remember that older items are located in ROVER, not on the shelves, so you will want to refer to the catalog. The ROVER items can be retrieved automatically by placing a request using the library catalog.
