This list contains all of Normandale's books with the subjects "women" and "biography."
You can also borrow books from other libraries in our system through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). After you do your search click the dropdown under "Select a Location" and choose "All MnPALS Libraries." This will search the catalogs of every library in the system, including Normandale's.
When you find a book you're interested in borrowing click on "Request Item" under the Holdings information.
You will be prompted to log in with your StarID and password. Once you have logged in click on "Request ILL" and submit the form. You'll get an email letting you know when you can pick up your book from the circulation desk. Books take anywhere from a few days to several weeks to come in, depending on the lending institution and current number of requests. Request ILLs early to ensure you have time to receive and read the book before your assignment is due.
