Use the Online Catalog to determine whether we have a particular book. Use Find A Periodical to determine whether the library owns a particular journal and whether it has the particular issue you need. If we don't have the book or journal you need, request it as an InterLibrary Loan.
If you have a citation and need to see if FLITE owns the article in any format, use the Find a Periodical database.
These are locations for journals FLITE has in physical formats:
Current Periodicals - Second Floor
Bound Periodicals (1999 - present) - Second Floor
Bound Periodicals (before 1999) - Lower Level
Microforms (microfilm and microfiche) - Second Floor
If FLITE does not own the article in any format, use InterLibrary Loan.
