Type in the title of the book, or keywords of your topic.

On the right side of your results page, limit to "Full-Text Online" to see E-books, and "Available in the library" to see print books.

Interlibrary loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service available to FHSU faculty, staff and students to help you obtain research materials not owned by Forsyth Library, or which are inaccessible to those who live too far away to visit the library. Please note that the library does not provide textbooks through Interlibrary Loan. Instructions on using this free service and more information can be found on the Interlibrary Loan Guide.
