Begin your research in Philosophy and Religion and find articles, books, journals, videos, and more.

How to Find Books

In the search box use keywords, i.e., Descartes.  If you want titles written by Rene Descartes, use the drop down arrow and limit to author.  If you want to see what is physically on the shelf in the SXU Library, go to the right hand column on the display page.  Scroll down to Location and choose Print Books.

If you know the title of a book,  type it in the search box.  If you cannot find the title you are looking for, use the drop down arrow and select I-Share Libraries.  One of the I-Share libraries may own the title and will lend it to you.
