Remember that although many of the library databases provide MLA citations for electronic sources, it is your responsibility as a student to ensure that all of your citations are correct.
Be sure to compare any database generated citations to the library's MLA guides online (link below), the official MLA Handbook (located at the second floor Reference Desk), or your Little Seagull Handbook.
Search the library catalog for print and electronic books on your topic.
When searching the catalog, be sure to limit to West Campus and books or eBooks before you search.
Note: If you do not access this guide through Atlas, you will be prompted for a Borrower ID and PIN when you click on the links to the databases
To find a book, write down the title and the call number, e.g. BL48.H368 2003
To find this call number, break it down.
Look first for the BL section.
Books are arranged alphabetically from call number A toward the wall farthest from the classrooms to call number Z closest to the classrooms.
Then look for the number; pay attention if you have tens vs. hundreds vs. thousands. This number is 48.
As you look, remember:
Once you find 48, look at the next part: H368. Ds come alphabetically after A, B,...and G.
Hopefully, you now see your book.
