Super Search doesn't distinguish between books and ebooks. To ONLY see print books, scroll down to Collection and select Pueblo General Collection. This will eliminate ebooks.
CSU-Pueblo Library uses the Library of Congress Classification System to organize books. Look at the first letter of the Call Number - that will tell you which floor you need to start on. This list is also posted in the LARC elevator, and on the digital signs next to the elevator on each floor.
A -- General Works
PS -- Language and Literature (American Literature)

Eliminate books that are also available in the CSU-Pueblo Library stacks: Under Show Only, click on the red X that appears to the right of CSU-Pueblo.
Click on a book title to view the entire record. Scroll down to the section Find It In Print. If you haven't signed in yet, you will see a grey bar prompting you to do so. You MUST log in to access direct borrowing—the ILL links aren't what you're looking for!
Now that you've signed in, you'll see a new option: a link labeled Request.
Click Request, and fill out the form. Make sure to mark the Pickup Location as Pueblo Library. You don't need to provide a Need By date. Press Request to submit.
You'll receive an email notification when your book is ready to be picked up from the 1st floor circulation desk.
Repeat the steps from section 1. Instead of selecting Collection Pueblo General Collection, select Online at CSU-Pueblo under Show Only. This will eliminate print books from your search results.
Click on the book title to open the full record. Scroll down to the section labeled View Online. One or more links to the ebook will be listed. If you are accessing Super Search from off-campus, you may be prompted to log in after clicking on one of these links.
There are a number of historical books in the public domain. These online collections are a good place to start:
Access WorldCat. More than 10,000 libraries from around the world, CSU-Pueblo included, have uploaded their book catalogs to WorldCat so that users can find and request books from wherever they might be found.
Click on Advanced Search. Enter your keywords in the search boxes. Under Limit your search, change the Audience setting from Any Audience to Not juvenile. Press SEARCH.
Limit your search results to Print books, using the left-hand menu. For licensing reasons, you cannot borrow ebooks or other electronic resources from other libraries.
Click on the book title you want, then click the blue Request Item button. Fill out the form and press submit. You will receive an email notification when your book is ready for pickup at the 1st floor circulation desk.
