Finding Books

Use the box below to search the RTC Library Catalog for books, videos, DVDs, and journal titles.



Sample Searches

Robotics and Industrial Controls students often do searches like these in the RTC catalog:



Robotics (Note that this and the previous search produce different lists of books, try a variety of search terms!)


Industrial Controls


For electronic books (eBooks) that you can search and download anywhere from the web, go to the RTC Library Online Database page and click on EBSCO Community College eBook Collection. There you will find over 40,000 books on all topics.


Are you looking for a book that the RTC Library does not have? Interlibrary Loan may be able to help you to borrow the book from another library. (Make your request as soon as you know you need the book, Interlibrary Loans can take some time.)
