Although some books are listed within ArchivesSpace if they were donated as part of a collection, our full inventory of books is available through the USF Library Catalog system. After inputting your desired search term, use the "Refine Your Results" bar on the left-hand side to select the "Library" dropdown menu. This menu will allow you to filter your results by "USF SPECIAL COLLECTIONS-Tampa." Clicking on the desired item/book will allow you to check if the item is available and to submit a "Request for Reading Room Use." Requesting an item within the catalog will automatically direct you to Aeon to login and complete your submission.
