In most cases, if the library catalog returns a "no matches" message, it means the Library does not subscribe to that particular title. Other times, due to differences in cataloging and indexing practices, searching the library catalog from the Find it! menu may not find materials that we do own. To verify whether or not the library has a particular item, search for the title of the book or journal you need in the library catalog directly.

Once you determine that the library does not own the material you need, you may submit a request for the item through Interlibrary Loan directly.
