Users may browse the collections, or can search for a specific item by searching
the SMU Library Catalog. The catalog record provides a call number for locating
the item on the shelf. Most materials are shelved by subject, except for
periodicals, which are shelved alphabetically by title. Materials in the
basement or on the first floor may be used anywhere in the library.
To access items identified as Special Collections, Special Reference, or Methodist
Reference, please request the item through the Circulation or Reference staff.
