Finding and Ordering Literature

Do you need specific literature for your research project? Using the online catalog, Primo, and the university’s databases, you can be sure to find what you are looking for quickly. If an item you need isn’t in the library collection, you can order it using the order service. If you only require specific chapters from a book, the scanning service can scan and e-mail them to you. By authorizing employees to borrow items on your behalf, they can collect your items from the library without any problems.
