When you think libraries, what's the first thing that comes to mind? Books, probably. The SHU Library has a collection of physical books and eBooks. As you may have noticed, our building is small. For that reason, we have invested our money to getting eBooks so that students on campus and online can get access to the materials they need.
You can search for books by clicking over to the Books tab on the library's home page.
You can type in the title if you're looking for a particular book, an author name, or just a set of keywords. If the item is an eBook, you will see a PDF Full Text link that will allow you access the full text of the book.
If the item is a physical book, you will see the item's location and availability right on your results page.
If you need a book that the SHU Library does not have, don't despair! You can request a book through the InterLibrary Loan or ILL system. ILL allows you to request an item from another university or library. Give yourself some time, though, especially when requesting a book. Physical items are shipped here, so it's not a good option if you're crunched for time.
