Sociology: Find Books

This guide is intended to help Moorpark College students learn about a variety of resources for conducting research in sociology

Finding Books in the Library

The Moorpark College Library catalog allows you to search for books, ebooks, CDs, DVDs, and titles of periodicals. From the library homepage, click the Library Resources button. 

1. Type your search terms into the provided box at the top of the screen. The default is MC Library Books and More.

When performing a search in the Library Catalog, the display screen for the record includes a list of records matching the search terms. The list of results includes for each record: the author(s) or editor, the date of publication, the call number, status of the book  and the location of the item. When you get your results, check for availability, location and call number to locate the item in the library.  A green check indicates the item is available and not checked out of the library. Charged or a red x indicates the item is checked out.

2. Write down the call number and find the two letter combination on the shelves:

    A-HN 2nd floor, HQ-Z 3rd floor
    All books located in the Reference Collection will be on the 2nd floor

3.  To check out your materials, take them to the Circulation Desk. You will need your student ID number (900 number) to check them out.
