Once you find a book by searching WorldCat UMD (note: WorldCat searches ebooks, and other electronic sources as well), scroll down until you see "Availability," and then you will see something like this image:

Building Location: WorldCat UMD searches libraries worldwide, so confirm that the book is located on campus and note which library it is in.  For the example here, the Location is listed as UMCP McKeldin Library Stacks.

Shelf Location: For McKeldin library, use this floor map.  Use the boxes at the top of the page, like the one below, to identify the correct floor.  


Example: The call number in the example screen shot above starts with the letters 'PZ.' According the the letter ranges in the box below, the letters 'PZ' lie between PR-Z, which is located on the 7th floor. 

Please do not hesitate to ask for help at any of the Libraries' services desks.
