The books in the library are shelved by Dewey Decimal Classification (like what is used in most school and public libraries). Sometimes you can find books you did not know about by browsing the shelves. The books in the biological sciences are shelved under the following numbers:
590 Animals (Zoology)
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free service that locates and obtains books, articles, & audio/visual items that are not part of Tech's collections. Available to currently enrolled students, staff, & faculty whose library account is in good standing.
Use the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Request button to request articles, books, or media from other libraries.
Articles - Usually delivered within days because these requests are most often filled electronically. Book chapters are handled in this manner as well. You will be notified when digital copy is available for access.
Books & Media - Allow at least one week for physical items. High demand items may take longer. Textbook requests are NOT accepted.
Intercampus Loans Use ILL forms to request items from the other campus. Must indicate campus in Pickup Location field on form.
Distance Learning Services - Students are eligible for Distance Learning Services from the library when taking all courses online and live more than 25 miles from their home campus. Choose Distance Learning Services from the Pickup Location field on form.
Use WorldCat, a catalog of books available in libraries all over the world, to find books not found at Tech. Use the information to request items.
You can find books in other libraries that may be helpful with your research. Find them here and request them through Interlibrary Loan.
Arkansas Tech is a member of the ARKLink consortium so our students and faculty have borrowing privileges at other ARKLink member libraries.
