How to find library books

There are many more children's books in the Sacramento City College Library than I have listed in this guide.  Use the Catalog (LOIS) to find a book that you are interested in.  Here are a few helpful hints:

  • Perform a Simple Keyword search.  Type in the topic that you are searching for, such as 'Chinese New Year', and add 'juvenile' after it.
  • OR Perform an Advanced Keyword search. Type in your topic, such as 'Mexican,' at the top.  Change Location to SCC Children's Books.

Play around with the terms for your topic until you find what you are looking for.
