Find Print Books and Other Physical Items in the GFU Libraries 

To search for GFU print books, videos, and other physical items:

  • Add your search terms and click the go button to run the search

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 journalslook at the left side of the search results under the Availability heading and click the link "Physical Items in GFU Libraries"

Next, narrow by Resource Type such as print books from the left sidebar by clicking the link to Print Books, DVD Videos, Journals, etc. 

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 four-week period, with up to two renewals. Most DVDs check out for one week.

Search by Subject

Below are some links to various subject searches in the catalog. The subject search is a specific and helpful way to find materials about your area of interest. Explore these or try some of your own subject searches using the "Subject" tab in Primo. For more information on power searching" by subject, ask your reference librarian.
