When you first land on the HCC Libraries' Homepage at http://library.hccs.edu/home you will see a search box on the page that looks like the image below.
This is where you would begin your search. The Eagle Library Search search type is chosen by default, and this is a good place to start. You can enter a few words that might appear in the title of a book on your topic or in a description of it.
For example, a good starting point could be to enter the word "jobs" or the word "careers" and a word or phrase that describes your field - "sports" or "healthcare" or "business," for example. Beware though- small differences in search terms can make a big difference in the results you retrieve. Try "careers health" and then try "careers healthcare" and then "careers health care" and notice the difference in the number of results!
Once you find a title that meets your needs, take a close look at the item's record. In order to find and check-out an item, you will need its Library location, Call Number, and Status. Use the View catalog record link to check current availability and to request that the item be held for you to pickup.
If an item is available in full text you need only click the link. You will be asked to log in if you are not on an HCC campus.
Search for Course Reserves using the catalog link to the right.
