Finding Books in the Library

The Library specifically purchases thousands of books and e-books to support the classes taught at the College. The best way to find these resources is to use the Summon search box, which searches all the library's resources in one location.

How to search:

  • Click on the Books tab
  • Enter the title or subject term you are researching in the search box
  • Click SEARCH
  • Results will open in a new window
Search for print books / e-books
Advanced Search | Online Catalog | E-book Collections
Search for articles, books and videos in PGCC Library
Advanced Search | A-Z Database List
