First, recheck the catalog entry to make sure the title is not checked or located in a location other than the regular stacks. Look in the "Status" section of the record.

A second place to look is on the Sorting Shelves of the library you are using. The sorting shelves are on Level 1 of Coe Library.

If either of these actions does not solve the problem, go to the Circulation Desk and ask them to search for the title. Since searches can take a while you may be able to get the item faster through Prospector or Request It. Use the UW Library catalog to find the item, then look for the Prospector or Request It buttons. When you click those buttons, the request form is automatically filled in.
