ENC 1101 (Ruiz): Finding Books & E-Books

A guide to help students complete library research in Professor Ruiz's Freshman Composition I class at the Osceola 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 left 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.

Finding e-Books

To search for e-books: From the library catalog home page (above), choose the eBooks tab towards the top of the page. Your search results will now contain e-books only.



To view an e-book, click the "Valencia: Click here to view" link underneath the book's entry on the search results page.
