Library Catalog Help

Help for patrons using the Library's Books & Media Catalog

How do I find the book or video on the shelf?

See the next section, Request the Book, for info on how to request books during the Fall 2020 semester (because of the COVID-19 pandemic, students and RVCC employees will not be allowed onto the second floor of the library to retrieve books).

When on-campus operations resume more normally, write down the call number or or email it to yourself and head to the library to find it in the stacks! You should also pay attention to the shelf location, listed right before the call number.

Any library employee will be more than happy to help you find what you are looking for, or you can check the Library Floor Plan to see where shelf locations are.
