Research Process



Library Catalog
Use the Library Catalog to find library materials such as print books, eBooks, periodicals, media and reserve items. Search by keyword, author, title, subject, or by course name and instructor for reserve items. Additional services such as renewing books online, viewing your library account, and requesting interlibrary loans are accessed through the online catalog as well. Ask a librarian if you need assistance using the catalog.
For more information on how to locate books on the shelf and the Library of Congress Classification System, click here.

Research Databases
Library research databases are available only to Los Rios Community College students, faculty, and staff. These databases can be accessed from off campus by using your Los Rios Unified Log-in and Password. Ask a librarian if you need assistance using the databases.
