Borrow & Renew Library Materials

Check out Circulation!

The Circulation Front Desk is the first one you see when you enter the Murdock Library, and the place to go to borrow or renew materials. We can also help you connect with other library departments, assist with the computer lab or printers in our building, and help you track down books on our shelves.

Find Library Materials

You can search Primo to find materials in George Fox Library Collections and our partner libraries, or you can work with a librarian to find resources on a given topic.
