Using the keywords brainstormed in Activity 1, search for books in the main UWM Libraries Search Tool: Search@UW. Can you find one of each type of book?
How do I find a call number on the shelf?
Follow these steps when you're looking for a book on the shelf.
1. Search for the item in WorldCat. You will use the WorldCat Record details to fill out the Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad) form later in the process.
2. Sign into your Interlibrary Loan Account using your ePanther ID and password.
3. Once logged into your account, select a request form from the menu in the upper left.
4. Copy and paste the item details from the WorldCat record or manually enter it from the item's citation into the appropriate ILLiad request form. Fill out all the required fields, this will speed up the process. Please paste the URL of the item in the notes field.
Tip: You can use a DOI number to fill in an Interlibrary loan request form. Paste the full DOI into the top box in the Interlibrary loan article request form, and then click “Resolve DOI." This will auto-fill the form with the details for the item you’re requesting.
In general, interlibrary loan requests take between 2-3 days for articles and 10-14 days to fill books. Some requests may take longer.
