>From the results page, select a title to find out which libraries have it.

Copy and paste the bold text above (including the *su:*) into the search
line. If you are looking for another state, just change the name of the
Two more ways to narrow your results more in order to get results that are

make selections as you see fit.
2. Replace the name of the state with the name of the city of interest.

library. The machines also make copies. There is usually a per-page charge
Library staff are always ready to help you, just ask!
