Library Research Guide
Use Search It's Advanced Search for more control over your search.
The link to the Advanced Search appears next to the Search Box once you have entered Search It. It is not available from the Libraries' home page. (Pro-tip - click on the magnifying glass icon in the Search It box on the home page to open Search It without entering any search terms.)
1. Enter keywords in Search It's search box.
2. Click K-State Libraries only option to search for items owned by K-State Libraries.
3. Item record shows if an item is available and where it is shelved. If not available, either because checked out or due to the Hale fire, you may request a copy through Interlibrary Loan.
4. Virtual Browse at the bottom of the record shows items shelved nearby the item you found. They have similar call numbers, so will usually be about a similar topic.
