Location, Call Number and Subject Headings

When the time comes to gather your materials, you will want to refer to each record for the Location (which library) and Call Number of each item. For this reason, keep your records saved and make a list of your materials, noting location information and call numbers, to take with you as you visit libraries and collect your books.

OskiCat Record
