Search Tips

The online catalog helps you find books, e-books, streaming media and  more. (The databases are still the best for finding magazine, newspaper and journal articles.)

Logon to the library catalog here. Sign-in at the top right for full access

For print or ebooks, choose the "Library Catalog" tab at the top of query box. Type  in a search term--it can be a topic, the title of a book, or an author's name.  If you want to search only one campus, change "Palm Beach State College" to  your preferred campus.  Click "SEARCH."

When the results appear, look in the left panel called "Narrow Results".  Check "Books in the Library" to get results for print books.  To find eBooks, click the gray "eBooks" tab above the search box; your search will be reformulated to get books which have been digitized.
