Request Help to Identify Locations

Need Locations (NLOC)

If you need some help verifying a request that cannot be filled by Minitex, you may request assistance in identifying non-Minitex locations so you are able to refer a request outside of our region.

Type "NLOC" (for "Need Locations") in the "notes," "location," or "verification" section of your request form. A Minitex staff member will check resources available at the University of Minnesota for bibliographic sources and, if located, will provide you with a list of libraries that own the item.

If an NLOC item is found to be owned at a Minitex library, it will automatically be referred to that location in an attempt to fill the request.
