University Library, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Once you've found an item in the catalog, you need to know which library it is in.
Locations: Each entry represents an individual item on the shelf in that location.
For example, there are copies of the book above at both the Main Stacks and the Florida Ave. Residence Hall Library.
Call Number: Where on the shelf an item can be found; it's like the book's address on the shelf. It's the number after the location as shown above. Libraries on our campus use Library of Congress (LC) Classification and the Dewey Decimal system to organize materials. For more information see the infographics below.
Status: The text below the location; shows whether a book is available to check out or not.
On Shelf - The item is on the shelf.
Most other statuses (e.g. out of library, damaged, in process, overdue, missing) mean that the item is not available. If there is not a copy available on campus, try searching for the item in I-Share (check just below the U of I availability for I-Share availability).
