Check out these videos about how to search the Ames Library and I-Share catalogs.  If the book is not available at Ames or through I-Share,our statewide consortium of seventy six academic institution, then next place to look is WorldCat, which is one of the most comprehensive catalogs of books and other materials in libraries in the United States and worldwide. To obtain an item through WorldCat, use the GetThisbutton and follow the interlibrary loan link to ILLiad.
