Your best bet is going to be to come to the desk and ask us about it.

There are a couple of reasons why you might not find a book upstairs:

  • Double-check the book in the catalog, and make sure it's found on the Kentucky Campus, isn't reference, isn't in archives, and isn't listed as being on reserve. We can also help you do this.
  • If the book was just recently turned in, it may not have made its way back to the shelf yet. This often happens with course textbooks, since they circulate often. If you come to the desk, we can look in our returned books section and check the book out to you.
  • Sometimes, books get misshelved. We try very hard not to do this, but it can happen. This is one of the reasons why we ask patrons to bring books back to the desk, rather than reshelve them. If a book gets misshelved, then we can try to look for it, but we might not be able to find it.
If you can't locate a book, it's possible that it's held at Asbury University, or on the Florida Campus. Asbury Seminary students can walk to the Kinlaw Library on AU's campus and check out books, or can fill out a library loan request to receive books from Florida and other libraries. If you need the book fast, search for the book on www.worldcat.org to find out if a local library has it.
