If the library does not have a book you  need, try E-ZBorrow, a consortia of libraries that share their collections.

 

*Ignore all books in E-ZBorrow that have a book icon with an 'e' on them. These are e-books, which cannot be requested. Instead look for a print version (no 'e' on the book icon).

To apply subject headings, use the Advanced Search Mode in Discovery.
