Find Books

Books often provide a more systematic overview of a research topic than is usually found in articles.

Circulating Books in Mitchell Memorial Library

The books that you can check out are called circulating books. These books are grouped together in subject areas, and each book is assigned a unique call number that starts with letters and is followed by a combination of letters and numbers.

  • To find books in your research area, search the online catalog.
  • Write down the call number of the book and also note if it is a circulating book and which library it is in.
    • Most books will be in Mitchell Memorial Library.
    • Others may be in the Vet School Library, located on the 3rd floor of the Vet School. 
    • If you see a book that you need from another library, click on Place Hold and enter the required information. We can then get it from the other library for you.
    • Books in "Special Collections" can only be used in the library.
  • Once you find one book on your topic, be sure to scan the shelves for other books that may be useful.
