If you see a title that you are intersted in, you may search the Ames Catalog to see if it is available.
The collection is located on the entry level - east of the Circulation Desk. Books are available to faculty, students and staff and can be checked out for three weeks; there is no limit to the number of books you can check out and the items can be renewed.
Items are added to the collection on a regular basis, so be sure to stop by often and see what’s new.
