The Libraries Service Center and the Welch Service Center.....

These are two very different locations, and require different responses in order to get your materials.

When searching for an item and you see the message (below):

It means your book is at the Library Service Center, also known as the LSC – this is a repository of old or rarely used journals, books and audiovisuals. You can’t go to the LSC, (it’s located off-campus) but you can place a request and have your items arrive at the nearest pick-up location on campus. 

Now….when searching for an item and you see THIS message (below)...

it means your item is at the “Welch Service Center”, also known as the WSC which is located in the Basement or Lower Level of the Welch Medical Library. The WSC is the activity hub and multi-service point of the Welch Medical Library. 

To summarize: These are two very different places and locations. But when you're busy multi-tasking and being busy as-all-get/out, who's got time to worry about these small bumps in the information road. No problems, because that's why we're here. To sort it out and get you headed in the right direction. If you talk to our Service Center Staff, they'll be sure to assist with any questions you may have.
