Find books in other libraries

Books owned by other libraries are available to you through interlibrary loan.  Search the catalogs below to find books to help you in your research.

Interlibrary Loan

If you come across a book you need for your research, and the Library does not own it, request it through our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service.

Plan in advance when making ILL requests, as it can take anywhere from several days to several weeks for your book/s to arrive.




The Bethel College Library has access to thousands of ebooks through EBSCOhost and ProQuest Ebooks Central.

EBSCO ebooks can be searched in the library catalog.  You can identify them as eBooks by the phrase "electronic resource" after the title, the phrase "(electronic bk)" after the ISBN record, and, finally, a Linked Resource saying "An electronic book available through the World Wide Web; click for information."  You can also search them separately by going to EBSCOhost and selecting the eBook collection database.

For detailed instructions on reading/downloading EBSCO eBooks, go to this GUIDE.

ProQuest Ebooks Central can also be searched using the library catalog.  Because ProQuest is always adding titles, however, you may also want to search the collection directly.

For detailed instructions on reading/downloading ProQuest Ebook Central titles, go to this GUIDE.
