Virtual Browsing - For Physical Items in the Library

Every time you view the full record of a physical item such as a print book or DVD on "Quick Search", at the very bottom of the page you will find the "Virtual Browse" option. This allows you to remotely browse related titles shelved close to the one you are viewing. It is a great way to quickly have a feel of how many titles related to the subject you are interested in are available in the library.


You can now request items, whether they are on the shelf or checked out. Up to 10 items can be requested, and they will be kept on the hold shelf at the chosen location for 10 days. The item-on-hold limit includes recalls. Items can be picked up at Parks Library, Design Reading Room, or Vet Med. Storage items can be requested for delivery at those same pick-up locations.
