Finding Books

How to find books and more



EOU’s Primo is your access point to a vast amount of information resources, including books, DVDs, CDs and other physical items found in library collections. To search for books and other materials owned by EOU, start with the EOU Library search scope.

A keyword search is the best way to start if you are looking for materials related to a general topic. If you are looking for a specific book or other item, you may want to use Advanced Search to search by title or author, or choose to search for items in a particular format.

Choosing “Advanced Search” will let you construct a search with many different conditions. For example, you can do a keyword search narrowed down to a certain author. You can also search by language, publication date, or other criteria.

Once you have a list of results, you can narrow down to a particular resource type.

If you would like to request books to either pick up at the library or be sent to your home then please follow the instructions on the Request Books page.

Interlibrary Loan

If you cannot find what you need in EOU’s collections, try WorldCat. You can find the link to WorldCat on the library home page. Use the Interlibrary Loan Form to request items.
