When you find a record for a print book owned by DePauw Libraries, there will be a call number to tell you where to look for the book. Any books in the Roy O. West Library General Collection will be located in the following places:
If you find a book of interest that we don't own, you can use the blue "Request Item" button you see in the WorldCat Discovery record.
This will initiate an interlibrary loan request. We'll find another library that has a copy and get them to send it to DePauw. You'll probably be able to pick it up in 7-10 days.
When you find a call number in WorldCat Discovery, go to the stacks to look for the book.
The shelves have signs on the endcaps telling you what range of call numbers are on that shelf. The books go in order down one shelf, and then back toward you on the facing shelf.
To read the call numbers, follow the rules below (taken from the U. of Louisville libraries):
Many of the books available in Roy O. West Library also have an Internet Archive version available. To locate those, search for the book title in WorldCat Discovery and look for the full-text link. Internet Archive is a free site, not a library database, so a book can only be viewed by one person at a time, and you must create an account to "check it out" for one hour and read it online. There is no download or print option.
