There are two ways to search for books and other materials at Valencia College Libraries:
1. Log into your Atlas account and click the "Search the Library" link in the upper right corner of the "Courses" tab.
2. Start at any Valencia Web Page and select Libraries on Quick Links.
If you need to place a hold, request a book online, or use any of our electronic resources you will need to login. The Login button is at the top right corner of the screen. To do that you will need to enter your Valencia Identification number (your "V" number) including the "V" in the box for Borrower's ID. Your PIN will be the last 4 digits of your "V" number.
Once the Library Catalog page opens, Clicking Advanced Search is the best way to do a search so you can limit your search to items we have at Osceola or limit by item type. I HIGHLY recommend at least limiting Material Type to Omit Books so that you are not overwhelmed with articles that may or may not be appropriate to use and may or may not have full text.
B – Philosophy, Psychology, Religion
H - Social Sciences
HQ -- The Family, Marriage, Women

Consult a campus librarian for help locating these books if needed. The books below are just a small selection of those available.
