Finding Physical Materials
Most of our materials are arranged by Library of Congress Call Number, a classification system which groups books together by subject. No matter your level of experience, finding a book in the stacks can be confusing. We've created guides to help you get started, but if you can't find something on your own, please ask us for help. Our Circulation and Research Services staff are glad to help you locate what you need - and can all relate to the frustration of not finding what you're looking for on the shelf.
Reserving Materials for Pickup
You can also request books online for pickup. Once you've located the title in the library catalog, click on the "Request Pickup" link. You must be signed into your library account via Wesleyan SSO to see the link. Requests are usually processed within 24 hours (Monday-Friday). You’ll receive an email when your requests are ready for pickup.
You can also request scans of pages, chapters, or book sections. Once you've located the title in the library catalog, click on the "Request Digitization" link. You must be signed into your library account via Wesleyan SSO to see the link. You'll receive an email when your digitized item is ready.
