How Do I Use the Library Catalog?

Rather than a traditional catalog, George Fox Libraries provide a "discovery system" called Primo -- a single interface for locating books, journal articles, media and more.

Primo allows you to search for materials owned by George Fox, as well as those at other libraries.  Search Scopes allow you to specify what you want to search:
