Search the book title in the OneSearch search box on the library home page. Type in the name of the book that you are looking for in quotation marks (e.g., "Bluest Eye") and hit return or click on the search button.
You will then see if the book is available at a UM Missoula library, at another library in the consortium of Montana libraries that share the OneSearch platform, or if it is not available in our system.
If available, you will see if it is in paper and or an electronic book; if in paper where it is located (i.e., call number and floor level, such as 741.5973 B391r) and if it is on the shelf or checked out, and if electronic the database that provides online access to the title.
Write down the call number and floor level to find the book in the building, or click on the database name to access the item online.
If the book is not in our system, submit an interlibrary loan request and we'll borrow it from another library for you.
