The library purchases books in electronic format, which means that although the books appear in the online catalog, they are not physically shelved. Also, because of space limitations, some print books have been stored off-site at the Annex. To browse both e-books and Annex books: once you have found a relevant title, scroll to the bottom of the catalog record to reach the Virtual Shelf. It displays all materials in call number order surrounding the found item, regardless of a book's format or physical location.
