Often I need books beginning with the call number F1219. When I look for books in this section, I can rarely find them. Books are stacked on the floor, crammed in behind or on top of other books on the shelves. Often I have to fill out a search form for books that are listed as available in the catalogue. If somebody would take the time to organize and/or expand this section, so that all the books fit on the shelves, it would probably save everyone involved a lot of time.
Thank you for using the Item Request Form to request books you can’t find. This form initiates a search for the book and a replacement decision if the book is missing. The collections in the E and F call numbers have experienced much growth recently. The Libraries has been relocating lesser-used materials and duplicates to make room. The Stacks Manager is aware of this section and we hope you have seen improvement already.
We hope you have a positive experience at Cabell Library this semester!
