How do I find, check out, request, and return books?
Use UC Library Search to locate items held by the LBNL, UCB, or UC libraries. This will bring up both print and electronic books. (To get print books, go to Advanced Search and change the Material Type from “All Items” to “Books”. Most of LBNL’s books are currently being moved to another location. (Contact a library at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain a book from that collection.) A smaller collection of newer books is in the Reading Lounge, Bldg. 54-002 (the room downstairs in the cafeteria). To check out LBNL’s books, fill out the card in the back of the book and drop the card in a designated box, or contact a librarian at email@example.com.
To return books:
Books can be returned to the LBNL Library four ways:
- Via the drop box located just outside 50B-2231. (Turn left as you exit the elevator on the second floor.)
- Via the drop box located in the Reading Lounge, 54-002. (The building should be open business hours.)
- Via mail: Library, One Cyclotron Road, 50-4032.
- Any UCB Library book return.
Ask an LBNL Reference Librarian by sending your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
