How Do I Search for Books?

Use WorldCat (World Catalog) to search for books, articles, media, and more that we have at MJC and to find out where they're located. WorldCat will also show you materials you can get from other libraries.

For complete instructions check out our WorldCat research guide.

Why Use Databases:

The MJC Library subscribes to many databases filled with authoritative articles, book chapters, research reports, statistics, and more from thousands of respected publications. You can search these article databases either by topic or for a specific article.

Using the Library's article databases ensures that you're using sources your instructors expect you to use, and you won't have to cull through millions of unrelated Web pages that will waste your time and energy.

All of these resources are free for you because you are a student at MJC. If you're working from anywhere off campus, you'll need to sign in. Once you click on the name of a database simply enter your student ID and six-digit birth date.

What if MJC Doesn't Have What I Need?

If you find materials in WorldCat that you need, but MJC does not own them, you can simply click the Request Item button in WorldCat to have that item sent to you here at MJC.

If, however, you need materials that you cannot find in WorldCat, you can request them through our interlibrary loan service.
