Using Shelf Browse in Encompass Search

The shelf browse function can help you find what is on the shelf -- even if you're not in the Library!

Not for ebooks

The second thing you should know is that Browse the shelf will NOT show all of the eBooks we hold interfiled with the physical books.  This is because, unlike physical books, eBooks do not have call numbers assigned to them. Browse the shelf will currently only show the presence of an eBook if we also own a physical edition of the book too.  

It's worth remembering that there are many, many ebooks in our collection that Browse the Shelf will miss.
