There’s nothing like the serendipity of browsing the stacks and discovering that one book that is the perfect reference on your topic. But now that the Pendergrass collection is inaccessible for summer, how can you browse the stacks?
This is where “virtual browsing” in the Libraries’ online catalog comes in!
If the search box on the Libraries’ homepage leads you to a promising title, you can browse adjacent titles in the call number sequence.
After initiating a search, you should see the Virtual Browse tab listed on the brief record for any title having a call number.
Click Virtual Browse to view a virtual shelf of book covers. The virtual bookshelf allows you to browse up to 100 items to the left and right of the entry. The bookshelf displays items in the call number sequence and includes e-books and books from all locations including Hodges and Music Libraries. That’s even better than browsing the stacks!
If you want to access a book from Pendergrass collection, place a request with Interlibrary Services. You can pick up your book at Pendergrass temporary location in Brehm Animal Science 243 or at Hodges Library.
