In order to find items in the Library, make note of the location and the call number.
The Ventura College Library uses Library of Congress call numbers to organize our books. This is an alphanumeric system used by most academic libraries.
Books are organized in alphabetical and then numerical order. There are signs at the ends of the book aisles with the call number ranges.
To read an ebook, click on the title of the book and scroll down to the "Holdings Information". Then click on the link to view online.
The Ventura College Library has electronic books from several different companies. Each company has a different way to access their ebooks.
Consult the EBSCO eBooks research guide for specific information about using EBSCO products.
