Research using the LSC-O catalog

The LSC-O card catalog has many books that may be useful for gathering information about your vacation. Searching the card catalog is very easy! 

First, go to the LSC-O online catalog 
Next, type in something that relates to your vacation.  For example, if you were traveling to Hawaii you may type in "hawaii" or "surfing" to find information about your location.  
Click search. 

After clicking search you will be given a list of books that are available at LSC-O for you to use for your assignment.  By clicking on the title of a book you will find more information about the book, it's location within the library and where to find it in our library stacks.
