SLS 1122 (Osceola and Lake Nona) - NSE: Library Resources

This guide is designed to help students with research and resource evaluation as they complete assignments for the New Student Experience course on the Osceola and Lake Nona Campuses.

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 lower right corner of the "Courses" 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 above will grant you access to the catalog in the event of an Atlas outage.

Finding Articles

To access the databases, log into your Atlas account and click the "Search the Library" link in the lower right corner on the "Courses" tab. Once the library catalog opens, you will see the "Databases A-Z" Link in the top center of the page, above the search box. Then find the database you want in the alphabetical list and click on the link to connect to it. Click the icon below to access the Atlas login page.
