How to find the call number (or otherwise access) a Materials Research Society Symposium Proceedings
U-M owns most of the Materials Research Society Symposia Proceedings, but it can sometimes be difficult to find where they are located.
For a proceeding published from 1998 to the present, check to see if there is a digital version in the Materials Research Society Online Symposia Proceedings.
For a proceeding published prior to 1998, or for which there is no electronic version, first try a "Word(s) anywhere" search in Mirlyn Classic, using "Materials Research Society" and the volume number; e.g.:
Materials Research Society 588
If that doesn't work, try a title words search with the title of the Symposium; e.g.:
Advanced Cementitious Systems
Alternately to using MIRLYN, or if the MIRLYN tactics don't work, you can use the Materials Research Society Proceedings Database to look up the call number for the proceeding by title words and/or volume number (but note that this database will not be able to tell you if it is checked out or not).
Failing the above, please contact a reference librarian for assistance.
