How to discover BOOKS @ F&M and beyond

Choose the Books & More tab on the library home page to access the library's catalog. Click on "More Search Options" to access all catalog search functions.

If you need or would like to discover more books on your topic after searching the F&M Library Catalog, search WorldCat, a global library catalog and resource sharing network.

Use E-Z Borrow, a regional expedited book-sharing network, to borrow books not available at F&M. [E-Z Borrow requires your F&M ID barcode number.] Should the book not be available through E-Z Borrow, request it through Interlibrary Loan/ILL.

To obtain articles from publications to which F&M does not subscribe, fill out an Interlibrary Loan request form, using the information found in the article's citation.
