Finding Books


Naropa's library catalog.

EBSCOhost E-Book Collection

This collection of full-text electronic books replaces netLibrary and provides access to over 3,000 books.


The catalog for the libraries at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Students and faculty can borrow books from Norlin Library with a voucher from Naropa.


You can get a Boulder Public Library card if you have a current Colorado mailing address.


A catalog of books and other materials held by thousands of libraries worldwide.

Google Books

Search the full text of millions of books, see previews of many of those books, and read scanned copies of books whose copyright has expired.

Interlibrary loan

If all else fails, our staff will get you the book you need from another library.

Altered Books

Most of the 174 artists' books at the Portland Public Library (which inspired our own Altered Books Project in Fall 2007) have image links, like this one. Find one or more that grab you, and request them through interlibrary loan. Library staff will be glad to help!
