Textbooks and Course Reserves

This guide will help you find your textbooks.

Library & Textbooks

  • For information about which books will be used as your textbook, check the LCCC Bookstore website. You need to know the TITLE, AUTHOR and EDITION or ISBN for your course textbook. 
  • Required textbooks for courses are not generally purchased by the Library, as textbook costs and student demand would not be tenable for the Library's book budget. However, some textbooks are acquired automatically through larger database subscriptions or consortial collections. Please check OneSearch or the Library Catalog for specific titles. (see below)


Use OneSearch to search most of our databases at one time.
