Finding Print Books in the Library

To Find a book in the library using the Library Catalog (HCC Libraries Search):

  1. You need the Call Number
  2. Check the Location (Circulation, Reference, etc.)
  3. Check the availability (available, checked out, etc.)

Here is a step-by-step document to help you find a print book in the library.  If you can't find what you need, ask for help. 

If you need a book for your research that we don't have at your campus library, you can request it. Here are instructions.

Tips on Searching

If you're prompted to enter Log-In information, refer to the Home or HCC ID Info page.

You may find all that you need just by using the HCC Libraries Search box, including more than just books—for example, articles, ebooks, streaming video, and more.

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.
