Searching for Books & eBooks
By using the filters on the left you can limit your search results to a single library, or expand it to include University of Divinity Libraries, Victorian Libraries, or Libraries Worldwide.
Print Books: To limit your search to finding a print book, select the library/libraries you wish borrow from and select print book from the format list.
e-Books: To limit your search to finding e-books, select University of Divinity Libraries, choose e-Books from the format list. If it is available as an eBook, a large red button will appear below the title.
By default the service will search worldwide libraries, and as such will show some items that are not held by University of Divinity Libraries. To identify when items are not held by the University of Divinity Library, the record will display the text at other libraries worldwide.

Beneath the title and summary, you will see the library, the shelving location, the call number and the availability.
The latest edition of a title will be shown first. If that particular copy or edition is not available, be sure to check if there are more copies of an alternative edition available. If it is available as an eBook, a large red button will appear below the title.
If an item says it is available at University of Divinity libraries but your library is not mentioned in the availability list, click on the record, scroll down to other availability & holdings and click Other Libraries Worldwide. Find your library and click on view catalogue to view item.
If the particular item you are looking for is not held at your library, you can see if an alternative edition is held by clicking on the record and scrolling down to the bottom of the page to explore different editions and formats.
