Find Books, eBooks, and More

Search Books, eBooks, and More in the OCCC Library Catalog

Use the OCCC Library Catalog to identify OCCC books, eBooks, and more on your topic. Here are some tips for searching in the OCCC Library Catalog: 

  • Keywords: Use keywords, not sentences like you may do in Google (example: wound care NOT how do you treat wounds)
  • Add Keywords: You may use multiple keywords when doing a search. Start with one and add others as needed to narrow your search (example: stroke and rehabilitation)
  • Publication Date: Be aware of the publication date. After your initial search, update the publication date to get rid of older titles in your results list.
  • Material Type: If you are looking for a specific material format, select from the "Material Type" list under "Limit Search Results" on the left.
