Religion: Books

Guide to resources in religion including reference works, databases, and websites.

Using books

You have many options when it comes to finding and using books.

Search the Grafton Library Catalog for books we own. 

Search Worldcat for books at any library and request them to be sent to you through interlibrary loan (click on the ILL button).

Interlibrary Loan

If you find an item you want but Grafton doesn't own it, you can request the item through interlibrary loan using the brown Request an Item Through Interlibrary Loan button.

ILL Button

Interlibrary loan allows Grafton to borrow books and articles from other libraries on your behalf. It may take a few days, but it drastically increases the number of sources available to you!

You have many options when it comes to finding and using books. The Grafton Library Discovery Service (GLDYS), allows you to search for books and ebooks both here at Grafton library and in libraries around the world. If you're just looking for books, make sure to pay attention to the limiters on your search, because GLDYS also allows you to search for articles and video materials.
