RCC's Library Catalog
Search the RCC Library Catalog for books and media (DVDs, etc.) physically shelved in the Library.
Included are bibliographic details (author, title, publishing information, contents notes, subject headings assigned to items for precision subject searching) and location information (where in the library an item is shelved and its call number, that is, subject-area number).
E-BOOKS (electronic books) can also be searched in the Library Catalog that you can then link to immediately, conveniently online.

On the resulting screen, click on the FULL RECORD tab to see a complete description (full "bibliographic record") for the item.
