Find Print Books and Other Physical Items in the GFU Libraries
To search for GFU print books, videos, and other physical items:
The initial Primo search returns physical items along with online materials.
To limit to physical items from GFU libraries, such as print books, DVDs and print journals, look at the left side of the search results under the Availability heading and click the link "Physical Items in GFU Libraries"

A Primo Advanced Search allows for more nuanced searching, and limiting by material type, language, and more. Circulation Period: GFU books circulate to students for a six-week period, with up to two renewals. Most DVDs check out for one week.
