If you're off campus and ONLY want to see the items that can be accessed remotely, you can limit your search results by selecting 'Online' filter.
Likewise, if you're on campus and want to identify what items can be found in our local collection, you can limit your location to the U of T Scarborough Library.
We use call numbers to arrange books in the library. When you find a physical item that you like, check that it is Available and be sure to take note of the call number listed near the library name (in the sample screenshot below the call number is QD40 .A23 2018) so you can locate it later on. Ask a library staff member to help you locate the book if needed. If the item is unavailable or located at another library location, use the Sign In button and then request it.
