What does "not available at the Library" mean?
Why is the material not available?
- the item has been cataloged prior to publication, and the item has not yet been published
- the Library has not yet received the item
- the item is currently in process
In addition, some items that are held by the Library may not be requested online for a variety of reasons. The item may be assigned to a reading room reference collection, it may be in use by another researcher, or access to the item may be restricted.
If you have a question about the status of a particular item that has been marked as "not available" in the Library's online catalog, we encourage you to Ask a Librarian for additional information. Please include the item's author/creator, title and/or LCCN (Library of Congress catalog number) or other identifying information from the online catalog record in your inquiry.
