New map feature shows you where that book is shelved

by Gerald Dierkes

You’ve looked up a  book in the library catalog, but where in the Library is it located? Each book’s catalog record now includes a helpful “Find on map” link, as shown for the Concordance to the Greek Testament.

The link connects you to a map of the library floor on which your book is shelved. The section of shelves that holds your book is also highlighted. Below you can see that your book is shelved in the Falvey West stacks.

The interactive map itself also shows the locations of various rooms and departments within the Library, as well as those of library staff. David Uspal, a member of the Library’s own Technology Development team, designed this interactive map and established its links in catalog records.

As construction continues on our building, and resources and personnel move around, we’ll be sure to keep the interactive map updated so you’ll always have the latest locations at your fingertips.
