Some of these are in our library, but not all. To request a book from another library, search Worldcat and use the “Find It” link, then on the next page, click on “borrow from another library. Then fill in your barcode (on your campus ID) and last name to log in, and (finally!) agree to the copyright statement and submit your request. You’ll get an email when the book arrives and can pick it up at the library’s main desk.
