Are you able to travel to other Western New York libraries that you would like to use? The library participates in a program called "Academic Share" that allows you to use regional academic libraries, and borrow books from them, simply by presenting your SBU ID card. Libraries in the program include Buffalo State College, Canisius College, Daemen College, Medaille College, Niagara County Community College, Niagara University, St. Bonaventure University, University of Buffalo, and Villa Maria College.
Don't forget to use Interlibrary Loan if you need material that the library does not have. The Academic Share program is part of Interlibrary Loan, but if you order through Interlibrary Loan, the library will obtain the materials for you without you having to visit another library. Please be sure to order your materials far enough in advance to allow time for the library to obtain what you need.
If you are looking for books in the Friedsam Memorial Library, use the Library of Congress letters C, D, E, and F as your starting point.
