How to Search for Books

  • Start search on the homepage of the library's website. 


  • Select the " Books & Media" tab above the search bar.


  • Keep in mind that a search term like " Latin American History" or " Mexican History" is too broad and will yield too many results. It would be beneficial to search for a more specific topic to limit the search results.


  • On the left column of the search page, there are options that are used to limit search results.

Useful Tip



 When on the page of the book, scroll down to the. "Details" section: 

Under the "Subject" subsection select one of the highlight texts to find more books about the topic (works for all materials in the catalog).

Other Libraries


   If the SFC library doesn't have the materials that you need, students have the option of requesting materials through Interlibrary Loan.
