HIS 400 - Baroque & Enlightenment: Find Books

Request Books and Articles From Other Libraries

If we don't own a particular book or journal article, we can order it for you through Interlibrary Loan.

Books
Books can take up to 2 weeks to arrive at our library, so be sure to do your research early.

Articles
Journal articles tend to arrive quicker, usually in 1-3 business days.

Some of our databases provide full-text articles (indicated by a PDF or HTML link after the citation).  Others only show you the titles of articles.  For these, click Article Linker to find out whether we own the journal in print and/or online.  Note the year of the journal article and make sure we own the year you need!

Finding it on the shelf

The book's call number is like its address on the shelf. 

Screenshot of Book Record with Call Number

The call number on the book will be vertical, rather than horizontal.  In order to locate the book on the shelf, work your way through the lines:

                Find the books in the PZ section.

                Within the PZ section, find the books with 7 in the call number.

                Within the PZ  7 section, find the books with .G, then 8233, etc. until you have worked your way through the call number.

If the call number is preceded by REF, the book may be on the first floor and must be used in the Library.  Most other books will be on the third floor unless they are labeled as Oversized and available on the second floor.
