You can search the print collections of Fast TRAC Libraries in SuperSearch by choosing the Fast TRAC button. The default scope searches all Fast TRAC libraries (including Drake's print collections), but you can select an individual library from the dropdown menu if you like.
Currently, books that are owned by more than one Fast TRAC library are not combined into a single record. If you search for a book that multiple libraries own, you will see multiple results with the note "Check Holdings." If the book is owned by Cowles Library, you will see an availability note (either "Available at Cowles Library" or "Not Available").
You might also see a "View X versions" button where X is a number. This means that multiple versions of the same title were found at the same library, and that library could be Cowles or a Fast TRAC library. Click the button to get more information.
Note: You must sign in with your Drake ID and Password to request items. Only current Drake students, faculty, and staff may request from Fast TRAC Libraries.
When you find a book you'd like to request:
If you happen to live near a Fast TRAC Library, you also have the option of walk-in borrowing at that library. You don't need special authorization or registration; simply present your Drake ID to check out books.
The materials you are able to check out are subject to the Fast TRAC Library's restrictions (see below), so it's a good idea to ask at the library before you look for material on the shelf.
This service is limited to current Drake faculty, staff, and students, and the focus is on print materials only (primarily books). Online articles and e-books are not part of this service.
Which materials are not allowed for checkout depends upon the Fast TRAC library, but typically special collections, media (videos and music), items on reserve, and print journals are excluded from this service.
