Find Books in the Library

Searching for Books

The easiest way to search for books is through VCSU's Library Catalogue. To get to the catalogue click here or select Books+ and then Advanced Search on Library's Homepage. 

Once your search is complete, limit your results along the right hand side of the screen. This will weed out unwanted results and ensure that all your results are relevant and on topic. The most useful of these limiters is Subject, Date, and Collection

Once you find a book that fits your topic and you want to use, click on the title of the book. This will bring you to a page with the book's information. From here, look at the subjects listed under the book. By clicking on any of the subject links, you will be brought to a list of books all on that exact topic. This is a great way of finding more books on your topic!
