HIST 1301/1302 TR McCambridge: Find Books and E-books

TCC Catalog Search

TCC Catalog Search on the library homepage is the best tool to use to find books, e-books, and DVDs. 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. NOTE: While the library buildings are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most books, audiobooks, DVDs, and Blu-Ray discs are available through curbside/front door pickup

Select "Ebooks" from the drop-down menu if you'd prefer to get a list of electronic books that you can read online or download to your device.

Search Tip 1 - Keywords

  • In the TCC Catalog box, select "In the Library" for print books or "Ebooks" to search for electronic books that you can access on your device.
  • Type the key words that describe what you're looking for. Don't type a question in the search box. Just use the words that relate to your topic.

Search Tip 2 - Filter Your Results

  • Use the filters in the left-hand column to narrow down your results by resource type, date, and subject.
  • Check for availability underneath each item title. Items in any library's circulating collection may be requested for curbside pickup. E-books are viewable by selecting the "Available Online" link.
