Some of the library's holdings cannot be requested through the catalog. The main reason is that these items are not allowed to leave the library building.

Here is a list of non-requestable items::

  • Materials that aren't allowed to circulate, including Reference books
  • Special Collections holdings
  • Current periodicals, including unbound newspapers
  • Reserves
  • Maps
  • Items labeled LOST or MISSING
  • Most items being treated by the Conservation Department
  • "Bound-with" volumes (however, the Service Desk staff can identify the requestable part of those and help you to make the request)
