Searching the Catalog

The library's catalog, located at http://library.vernoncollege.edu, assists patrons in locating books, videorecordings, sound recordings, printed music, and maps available at VC library locations. The catalog consists of records describing these materials as well as other materials available electronically such as e-books.

This tutorial is designed to help you devise successful strategies for:

  • Author searches
  • Title searches
  • Subject searches

In addition, the tutorial will briefly explain the arrangement of materials by Library of Congress call numbers.
