Step 1: In the online Primo search box, type one or two keywords or concept terms and join with an AND or OR (capitalization needed). For example, try emotion focused therapy OR EFT. Click Search.

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.
