The library catalog is the best place to search for books you can borrow from SPU and Summit libraries.
Step 1: In the online Primo search box, type one or two keywords or concept terms and join with an AND (AND/OR must be capitalized in Primo). For example, try divorce AND adolescen* . Click Search.
Step 2: Viewing the title of a relevant book will give you info about the book and ideas for further ways to search. For example, the subject of Children of divorced parents may be a relevant topic to search next. The description often includes a book description and title contents. For abstracts and additional chapter-level information of psychology-related books, search by chapter title in PscyINFO.
Step 3: On the right, refine your results as needed. Mouseover any selected limiter to lock your selection for further searches.
Step 4: 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.
Step 5: If you'd like, check out the book using your SPU ID card at the library's Front Desk.
