Accessing Books

Print Materials

Talk to your study abroad program director about what is available to you at your host institution and see what library privileges you have. Unfortunately, the Knox Library cannot send you books while you are studying abroad. However, many international libraries will still offer guests reader's cards to use the collections.


The library does provide access to numerous e-books that you can access while abroad. To find e-books on your topic, search in Knox Primo by keyword. Then using the limits in the left side of the results list, select "Available Online".

​Be sure to sign in to Knox Primo to be able to click on any links to full text resources that only available to you as a Knox student.

OR, try Google Books or the Internet Archive. Sometimes you can see portions of a book or get full-text access.
