FAQ: Why can I find a title when I search on the Welcome to NHU-PAC tab but can't find it when I do an ILL search?

There are a couple of possible explanations for this.

It’s possible your desired title is on the second or third page of results and you’ll need to click the Next Page button (at the bottom of the list of titles) to see it. Although you can sort your results by author, title, or date in the ILL section, the sort affects only the results (a maximum of 50) on the page you’re viewing.

Another possibility is that the title you want is represented by a serial record. In that case, you’ll need to click on the Begin Searching button underneath Journals to find it. Directories, almanacs, and travel guides may be represented by serial records in the NHU-PAC in addition to magazines and newspapers.
