BSC 1005 (Laurent): Print Sources

This guide can be used by students in Professor Laurent's BSC1005 class at the Poinciana Campus.

Finding Books

There are two ways to search for books at the Valencia College Libraries:

1) Log into your Atlas account by clicking the icon below, and click the "Search the Library" link in the upper right corner of the "My Atlas" tab

2) Visit the library catalog without logging in by clicking the box below


There are benefits to accessing the catalog through Atlas. You will be able to hold or request books online, so they are available when you visit a campus library. However, the link below will grant you access to the catalog in the event of an Atlas outage.

Browsing Guide

If you prefer to visit the Osceola Library and browse the shelves for books on your artist or the art movement they belong to, you can look under the following call numbers in both the reference and circulating collections.
