Let's say you find a book on Tripod and you really think it is relevant to your interests or research project. One way to physically browse books on Haverford's campus is to head to the Locker Building (near VCAM) which has approximately 22,000 volumes for you to browse and a self-check out kiosk if you find materials you want to check out.
But if you want to digitally browse, you can do that too. Take the call number of the book you liked (copy paste it from the online record). Head back to Tripod . Click on the Books and More tab. Underneath the search box is a link "Browse". At the bottom of the page there is a drop down menu, select "By Call Number." Paste the call number from the book you liked into the field. Hit enter or click "search." This will provide you with a massive list of the books at all three schools and you can browse the shelves digitally!
