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
It is easier to access the catalog through Atlas. You will be able to hold or request books online and use e-books or e-videos, without further logging in. However, the link above will grant you access to the catalog in the event of an Atlas outage and you can login at the top right corner of the page using your V# (Valencia ID) and your PIN (the last 4 digits of your V#).
