What does "LIB USE ONLY" mean?
Some books in the library catalog have an item status "LIB USE ONLY". This status means the book can only be used in the library, and it can't be checked out like most of our books. Usually, books on the first floor in Reference (REF) are marked LIB USE ONLY to make sure everyone will have access to them for their research. Also, Special Collections books (SPEC COLL) are labeled LIB USE ONLY to keep our rare and special books safe.
Please check the item location (REF or SPEC COLL) to find where the book is located. For Special Collections books, contact the Special Collections Department to set up an appointment to view the item.
