This guide has been designed to provide information about library resources available to students and faculty of the School of Pharmacy.

Search the Catalog

Finding Books

  • Find books from the library homepage search by entering keywords, book title, or author.
  • Below is an example of results after entering keywords into the search box.  Notice:
    • The arrow on the left shows different ways you can limit your search.
    • The ovals indicate how you can tell at a glance if we have the book physically, or electronically (we often have both formats).
    • The maroon boxes highlight how you can access the eBook from this page.  If you are off campus and are asked to login to access the item, just use your University username and password.

  • Not owned by the library?  Borrow the book through Link+ (read about it in the box below), or Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

Cooperative Agreements

This guide links to other academic, public and religious libraries in Southern California. National collections of interest and Seventh-day Adventist Libraries are linked as well.

For LLU students and faculty, the University Libraries has two main cooperative arrangements with area libraries.

Link+ is a union catalog of contributed holdings from participating libraries in California and Nevada. Patrons from member libraries electronically request an item not available in their own library and it is delivered to them for check-out. The service is fast and free.
