How To Use the Library

The Living University Library website contains links to many powerful online tools and search engines. View the menus and look for the area of research you need. Also, visit our tutorials and frequently asked questions (FAQs) for more answers and directions on how to conduct your research. Our online catalog (OPAC) is open to all and lists primarily our on-site holdings. Use the search bar above to search the Library catalog. We will continue to expand these holdings with professional journals and electronic books and documents in the future.

On-campus LU students and alumni, faculty members and staff, LCG employees and others with borrowing privileges may borrow library materials from the Charlotte library, including books, audiovisual materials, and periodicals. Each person must check out materials using his or her own LU library card. Only faculty may check out reference books and reserved items. While rare books and documents do not circulate. When desired library items are unavailable, patrons may be able to request an interlibrary loan (ILL) through their local library.
