Search the Library with Primo

Find Books

Take advantage of our hundreds of thousands of print and online books. From classic works on theory to monographs on new discoveries and practices, our book collections often offer a more comprehensive treatment of their subjects than journal articles do, and are shelved by subject, meaning a visit to the stacks can sometimes be surprisingly fruitful!

Here at GFU Library, you not only have access to our print collections, you also have easy access to the collections of the 38 other participants in the Summit library sharing system. These books will show up in Primo search results and will direct you to place a Summit request to be picked up from the front desk of Murdock Library in 1 - 3 days.
