There are three pieces of information in each location code that will help you find what you are looking for, the building, the part of the building, and the collection an item is in.  For example, if you see Wilson 5W -Books that means the item you are looking for is on the Wilson side of the library, fifth floor of the west wing in the regular book collection.  If I you saw the code Haggard 3 -Periodicals you would look on the third floor of Haggard Hall in the periodical collection for what you are looking for.  

If you are unable to find something please either contact us using the information to the right for assistance or speak with library staff at any of our service desks.
