Find books in the Library Catalog

The library catalog is the best place to search for books you can borrow from SPU and Summit libraries.

Step 1: In the Search Library Resources box from the library's home page, type a keyword or concept term.  The default search will search SPU print and online book holdings, as well as the holdings of all other Summit libraries.

Step 3: Browse the titles to quickly view if a book is available and to find the call number. If it is an eBook, click "View It" to access and read it on your computer or mobile device (not on a Kindle).  Write down the entire call number and retrieve book from the shelf in the library.  Reference materials are located on the main level, and the General Collection is housed on the 2nd and 3rd levels.
