Location Codes Explained

When ordering materials, to ensure proper routing during processing, Library Liaisons and Departmental Representatives must indicate the desired location in their request and/or order.

Usually only the base location is required for the order to indicate which library, branch, or department.  For these items a more specific location is assigned by cataloging.  On occasion, more specific location may be desirable in the order.

Below is a chart outlining the location codes for ordering
