Introducing: Browse Bookshelf, a virtual bookshelf
The University Libraries catalog contains records for over a million items across the Albert B. Alkek Library, the Archives & Research Center, the Round Rock Campus Library, and the Schneider Music Library. A feature in the library catalog, known as Browse Bookshelf, can assist with searching and locating where items are located on the shelves. Browse Bookshelf locates items at Alkek, RRC, ARC, and the Music Library using a call number and displays them on a virtual shelf that shows all items surrounding that call number as if it were there. In some cases, these books are located at a different library, but they can easily be requested and delivered to any library location for pick up.
To find and access Browse Bookshelf, go to catalog.library.txstate.edu. Once on the page, locate the search bar and perform a search. Click on one of the results to go to the full record. Then click on Browse Bookshelf link on the right. The color legend to the right of the bookshelf shows how many times the item has been checked out. Browse Bookshelf is currently in beta and user feedback is highly appreciated. Check out this page for more information.
