• The online catalog
    Use the Library's online catalog to find books on any topic. A search for Genesis will generate an overwhelming list of titles, which will include the text itself, commentaries on and criticism of Genesis as well as numerous random results. Use the subject search option and/or the facets on the results screen to further narrow your search or search for a particular book of Genesis only such as "Genesis III". For further examples see below:
    Books & more: "Sir Gawain and the green knight"
    Title: "Sir Gawain and the green knight"
    Subject: "Gawain and the grene knight"
    Articles & more: "green knight" and feminism (limit to peer-reviewed journals and ciriticism)
  • WorldCat
    A catalog of library holdings worldwide. WorldCat identifies books available in Falvey Library and offers an inter-library loan request option for books not available in Falvey Library.
  • E-Z Borrow and Interlibrary Loan
    Interlibrary loan is available for books and journals that are not owned by Falvey. EZ-Borrow is generally faster than interlibrary loan, since the books come from a local library network. EZ-Borrow can also be used for books that the Library owns, but which are currently unavailable.
