Criminal Justice (Yawn): Books and eBooks

This guide is designed to help students with library research as they complete assignments in Criminal Justice with Professor Yawn 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 on the left under 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 eBooks

Don't forget you can search for electronic books or eBooks in the library catalog. Limit your search to eBooks to see what is available on your topic.
