Evaluating Websites: Find Books in the Library

Finding Books for your Research

Question: How do I find better sources for my research?

Answer #1: Search the Library Catalog to find Books.



Library Catalog

The Peninsula Library System Catalog includes books you can check out from Canada College and throughout San Mateo County public libraries.

To access and search the catalog, go to the Library's homepage and select the Books tab. Next, type in the keywords (e.g. your topic) that you are researching and select the Gobutton. Once you've found a good book, try a subject search.

To search for books only at Cañada, under the pull down menu select Search Cañada Library.

Need a library card? Click on this application form and print your completed application. You can pick up your card at the Circulation Desk on your way out of the Library today.
