ENC 1101 & 1102 (Brunk): Books and eBooks

This guide is designed to help students with library research as they complete assignments in Professor Brunk's Comp I and Comp II at Osceola.

Finding Books

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 on the left side of the screen or in the “My Atlas” tab or in the upper right corner of the "Courses" tab. When the Library Catalog page opens, you will already be logged in.

OR

  1. 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. Click on the big yellow Search button. The Login button is at the top right corner of the screen. To login 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.
