Welcome to McFarlin Library. We have put together this guide to show you how to use the library, including how to find books and journal articles. We hope you find this guide useful.
Find a Book
You find library books by searching in our catalog.
For example, if you want to find a book titled Emma then you would type the word Emma into the search box.
Once you find the book, write down the call number (a series of letters and numbers) and go to the stacks to find the book. To use the call number, use this handy guide:
English Institute Books
You can find English Institute books as well as popular books on the two short shelves at the entrance to the reference level. To reach the reference level, go to the main level where the books are located. Go through the double glass doors and down one flight of stairs. You should see two short shelves where the popular and English Institute books are located.
Checking Out Books
To borrow a book from the library, go to the Plaza Level and look for the big desk in front of the coffee shop. Take your book(s) and student ID to the desk to check out your book(s).
Professors may place some materials on reserve. This means the material has a shorter check out time, usually 1-24 hours. Reserves can be found on the Main Level across from TU Copy.
