2. Under the Availability menu, you may limit to Available at Whitewater (physical items in the library), or Whitewater Online Resources (e-books).

3. The location of an item is indicated below the title information. Click the location line for further access information. 

4. If you see "Use Get It to Request", the item may not be currently available at UW-W. Follow the link to make a UW Request or to place a hold.
