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.
There are two ways to search for books at the Valencia College Libraries:

Searching the Online Catalog for Speech Books

-Use the advanced search tool to see books located in the Speech section.
-Change the "Keyword" search box to "Call #"
-Type the word "SPEECH".
-Make sure your "Material Type" is set to books, and "Within" is set to your preferred campus location
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.
