Is an item missing?

If you can't find an item on the shelf and SearchWorks doesn't indicate that the item is checked out, ask for help at the library's circulation desk. If necessary, you can complete a Search Request Form. Staff will search for the item three times within a 12-day period. If the item is found, you will be notified and the item will be held for you for one week.

If the item is not found, library staff will continue to search on a regular basis over the course of one year. It is your responsibility to check with the library regarding the status of requested searches.
