Finding and Getting Books Emory Does Not Own

Interlibrary Loan
If we do not own a book that you need, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan -- a free service. We will borrow a copy for you from another library. The first time you logon you will need to register. If you need help with this service, contact a reference librarian.


Interlibrary Use
You can check out books from Georgia Tech, Georgia State, and the University of Georgia with your Emory ID card. These institutions may have the materials you need for your research.  You may be able to checkout books from other local college/university libraries, as well.  An interlibrary use card may be required; these are available at the reference desk.


A comprehensive catalog of items held by a wide-range of libraries including research and public institutions. What you find in this catalog that we do not own at Emory, we can get for you through Interlibrary Loan.


discoverE & EUCLID


discoverE is the main search interface for locating items in Emory's libraries and digital repositories.

The default search in discoverE is a catalog search.

When you run a basic catalog tab search in discoverE, you will find all materials held by Emory libraries - print & electronic books and journals (NOTE: in the catalog search mode, you'll be searching ONLY journal titles, NOT contents of journals), music, videos and archival collections.

Reference staff can help you formulate successful discoverE searches. See the "Getting Help" box on the right for how to contact a reference librarian/staff member.

Once you have found a book's call number, this map of our library stacks tower will show you where it is located.
