  • Hi, this presentation covers how to find your readings.
  • Some lectures put together your study material and put them in a course reserve. You need to check if your lecturer has set up a course reserve.
  • Some lecturers set up e-reserves. In e-reserves, you’ll find only electronic documents which you can read online. Select a course and select “E-Reserve in the drop-down menu.
  • Click find or catalogue search. In this session, I am clicking find.
  • Type in the title and click search catalogue.
  • Holdings info tells you where to find the book and if it is available. You need to take note of the call number to find the book.
  • You will find this icon in the Library home page. Click it to send us emails and instant messages.
