BIO399/ENS399: Locating

What's Next?

Once you've searched for items, the next step is to discover if they are available on the shelves in Bethel's library or are full-text in the library's online databases.

Try the instructions on this page to locate books and articles in the Bethel University Library.

Locating journal/newspaper articles in Bethel's online databases

  1. When an article is available in the database that you're searching, you'll see links like these:  HTML and PDF Links
  2. When an article isn't available in the database you're searching, click
    360 linker icon
    • If the article is available in another database you will be taken directly to it.
    • Otherwise you will see a screen like this:

      Clicking on the Request item button allows you to request it from another library.

Locating books in the Bethel University Library

  1. From the CLICnet search results screen, locate the item you want in the results list.
  2. Look for "Bethel U" under "Copies::

  3. Click the title to see where Bethel's copy is located.

Requesting books from other CLIC libraries

What if there is no BUL in an item's location (e.g., the only copy said "BSEM Main Collection" next to it)?

This would mean that the only available copy of this book was at the Bethel Seminary Library. To get the copy sent to the Bethel University Library you would:

  1. click Request It Button  (at the top left of the item record screen, right below the green bar)
  2. enter the name and 14-digit barcode on your Bethel ID (do not type 'A' before/after the barcode)
  3. click Submit  on the "Requesting a Hold" screen

Requested items normally arrive in about two days, and emails are sent when items are available to pick up at the BUL circulation desk.
