Finding Books

Books will give you in-depth coverage of your subject. They frequently have bibliographies you can use to find other sources.  Videos can help you understand events through dramatization, and demonstrate complicated procedures, allowing you to watch them repeatedly.

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






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 nearly 60,000 books on all topics. If you are looking for books on computer or technology topics, also try the IT eBook Core Collection.
