How To Find Books

Searching strategies

Books are excellent places to look for background information. When searching for books in OneSearch, focus your search by searching the word career and then adding the career you are looking for, for example engineer, paralegal, nursing. A search using the keywords nursing career, for example, will result in books and articles that focus specifically on your career.

When searching for books in OneSearch, keep an eye out for the "Request this item" button for books that are located at other Los Rios campuses. You can request the book and it will be delivered to SCC Library for you within a few business days!


Finding Books

Start at the SCC Library homepage.

Enter your search in the OneSearch search box.

Limit to your search to books and Sacramento City College.
