Library Catalog

Check the Library Catalog for additional books. You will find books available on all 3 CCBC campuses.

In the Catalog you may:

  • Search a keyword topic, for example "Homeless" or "Holistic Health".
  •  Search the title of a book, for example "Encyclopedia of Careers".
  • Search an author's name, for example "Lee, Harper".

The Libraries use the Library of Congress Classification system to shelve books. You will need to have the call number to locate books; our call numbers use both letters and numbers together.

    Use InterLibrary Loan to borrow from other campuses/libraries.
