Pharmacy Technican Resources: Finding Books

This guide contains library resources for the Pharmacy Technician program.

Pharmacy Books on Reserve Shelf

Getting Started

The Library Catalog, WorldCat, and Mockingbird are tools for finding books, journal titles, websites, DVDs and other material available from Abington Library, Arkansas and worldwide. Because the records in the Library Catalog and WorldCat are often brief they work best for searches by Author, Title and important subjects or keywords. We use Library of Congress (LC) Classification to arrange books on our shelves. LC subclass RM is for Therapeutics and Pharmacology and RS is used for Pharmacy and Materia Medica.You may also find some legal materials in KF, although since it is the subclass for legal materials. 

Books that have call numbers should be print books that are in the Arkansas State University-Beebe Libraries. Most will be at Abington Library and will be circulating books on the second floor, or reference books on the first floor (reference books will have REF in front of the call number). Electronic books will have no call number. For example, a print book called The Pharmacy Technician has a call number of RS122.95 .M654 2016. It would be located on the second floor in the section that begins with RS. The 2016 at the end of the call number indicates the year it was published.

Borrowing Books from other libraries

Use the following tools when the Arkansas State University-Beebe libraries don't own the books you need, or if you just want to see what other materials might be available on your topic at other libraries:

OCLC WorldCat or OCLC WorldCat Discovery - Search results will show which libraries have a particular item.

Interlibrary Loan Form - Fill out this form and email it to Make sure to provide any important information, so we can find the item at another library.

Mockingbird, the Arkansas Statewide Virtual Union Catalog provides a single point of access to participating Arkansas library catalogs. Users can search this combined catalog and request interlibrary loans from participating institutions. You can access it at ASU-Beebe Mockingbird Catalog.
