Finding Physical Books, DVDs, etc. in the Library

HCC Libraries Catalog search (above), is a one-stop search portal which can lead you to many materials. It is a big database of books in the libraries, as well as online sources such as eBooks, articles, videos, and more!

When you've found a physical book by using the Library Catalog search - to locate it on the shelf in the library, you'll need to know the following:

  1. The Title
  2. The Call Number
  3. The Location (Circulation, Reference, etc.)
  4. The Availability (available, checked out, etc.)


  • Books, DVDs and other materials that can be checked out are located in the Circulation room (north side of the library).
  • You'll need your HawkCard to check out library materials.
  • Reference books (for in-library use only), such as encyclopedias, are in the Reference room (south side of the library).

eBook Databases

While eBooks (online books) may come up in a general search of the Library Catalog, you can also search individual eBook databases to find online books that precisely match your topical search terms. In addition, you can browse by subject, as well as search within a subject.
