Where to Discover BOOKS in the Library Catalog and Beyond

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

If you need or would like to discover more books after searching the F&M Library Catalog, search WorldCat, a global library catalog.

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.]
