Hum 1020 (Cairns) - Research Paper: Print Sources

A guide to research assignments in Professor Cairns' Intro to Humanities class at Osceola.

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.
