Finding a Print Book

You can use the Galter Library website to search for print books but not within print books. If you know the title of the book you seek, you can search for that title from the Galter Library website. Be sure to sign in to the Galter Library website or the NU VPN if you are off campus.

  1. Use the search box in the banner of the Galter Library website.
  2. Enter the title of the book (or the first few words of the title).
  3. Check to make sure the location of the book is Galter Health Sciences Library & Learning Center and the book is available on the shelf. 
  4. Retrieve the book from the stacks on the ground floor, and bring the item to the service desk to check out.  Be sure to bring your NU WildCard.

Note: By default, search results include only those resources which the library owns. Click "Expand my Results" to include additional resources that can be requested via Interlibrary Loan. If you encounter problems locating print books, please contact us or call us at 312-503-8126.
