GOVT 2305 SO Bowman: Finding Books


Search Tips

Discover books and more by searching the library catalog. Try your search here:



Select "In the Library" from the drop-down menu to limit your search to books, movies, and audiobooks that live in one of our TCC campus libraries.

Tip: Put phrases and concepts in quotation marks to get more precise results.  

For example:

  • "federal government"
  • "capital punishment"

To limit your search by format, title, or author, use the Advanced Search.

Book Arrangement

The TCC libraries use the Library of Congress classification system  to arrange books in the library.  You locate a book by it's call number which is like a street address.
