During Spring semester, 2020, you will rely on electronic books (ebooks) and articles that are available full-text through Furman's library, interlibrary loan (from another library) or freely available on the internet. Use this search box to get started:
All databases linked below will get you started with finding these. You must be logged into the Furman network to use ebooks we own, and to read the full-text articles. Interlibrary loans normally come in 24-72 hours to your email but maybe delayed during Corona Virus shut down periods. PASCAL deliveries (from other college libraries in South Carolina) are suspended for March 2020.
