2. On the record for the book, click the link for "Missing Trace", or in the classic catalog, "Item Not on Shelf".

3. On the page that appears, login with your Auburn Username and Password then click on the link for "Missing Trace"

4. Finally you'll need to input your library barcode before hitting submit.  Directions for how to create your library barcode can be found here:
