Search the library catalog to find books and other materials located at PCC Library.
Once you have found items in the library catalog that you would like to view, you will need to write down the call number and the location. A library staff member can help you locate the items.
Call Number Examples
If you only find one item, or you have clicked on the title of an item in the results list, the call number and location will be found near the bottom of the screen. If the item is checked in, you will see a note next to Item Info indicating how many copies are available.
