You have access to over 54,000 printed books and 220,000 electronic books. These books can give you an in-depth look at an historical topic.
To find books in the JSCC Library, use the Online Catalog
You may also want to come into the JSCC Library and browse in the various subject areas of the library. Searching the indexes of printed books can be very helpful.
If you need a book that the JSCC Library doesn't own, please contact Carrie Baker (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Provide her with the author, title, date of publication and publisher.
The Library then asks another library to loan us the book. We use the Online College Library Center to connect us to most academic libraries in the country.
It takes about 2 weeks for a book to be sent here from another library.
If you need help looking up information while you are at the Lexington Center, please contact Deborah Wilson in the Learning Resource Center.
She can assist you in obtaining a book from the main campus, using the electronic databases and locating citation information for your sources.
Do you want to view a video presentation on a topic that you are studying in American History? Use the JSCC Library's American History in Video series.
