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 right side of the "My 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 below will grant you access to the catalog in the event of an Atlas outage.
Library Pro Tip: If a book isn't available at Lake Nona or currently checked-out, click "Request Item" and then select where you would like it transferred to.
The Valencia College Libraries have a special collection of books on controversial issues and current events in a collection known as the "Speech" collection. You can either go to the "Speech" section in the library, or you can use the library catalog (link is above) to browse or search for your topic.
To see the books that are in the Speech section, you can do an advanced search in the library catalog. Then, change the "Keyword" search box to "Call #" as seen below, and type the word "SPEECH". Then, make sure your "Material Type" is set to books, and "Within" is set to Valencia College or a specific campus location. Clicking search will show you only those books in the speech section.
