Refine your search!

When you search in the EHS card catalog, you can limit your search to location. For example, you can search just the Ellington High School holdings, or you can search all holdings of all of the schools in Ellington.

After you find a book, choose copies and it will indicate which copies are found in which location. Each book title will be listed under each location.
