Use discoverE to Request an Item from Storage: As big as the libraries are on the Emory campuses, there's only so much storage available for all of the items in the university catalog. You're likely to notice it the next time you search for a title in discoverE and the results page says that the item is available but in storage. Don't give up on it! Retrieving those items isn't complicated and doesn't require a visit to the library service desk -- though you're certainly welcome to!

As part of the ongoing series of how-to videos the Robert W. Woodruff Library is producing to help Emory students and faculty members become better acquainted with discoverE, this video will help you find out more about requesting items from the storage library.
Once you've identified that the item for which you're searching is in the storage library, click the Request link. If you're not logged in, you'll be asked to do so. Then you'll be able to tell discoverE where you'd like to pick up the item -- at the Robert W. Woodruff Library or the Oxford College Library. Click the Request button and you're done.
