Prof. Maroney - English 101 Fall 2023: Books & Media


You do not need to read an entire book cover to cover to cite it in your paper. Use the Table of Contents (at the front) or the Index (at the back) to find the section or pages that discuss your topic in detail and read that.

How to Find Books and Media

Search the library's "Everything Search" to find Books and E-Books in the Harold L. Drimmer Library.

Use your keywords to find books on your topic. e.g. "Big Cities" to find books large urban settings.

If your first search doesn't turn up many results, try changing your keywords (e.g. search Urban OR Metropolitan OR Cities) to expand your search. 

Enter your search terms and click SEARCH. Narrow to "Books" using the Left side Resource Type. Click on a title record for more information. Look at the tagged SUBJECT HEADINGS, table of contents or book description to see if the book might be helpful.

To find the book on the WCC Library shelves, you will need the CALL NUMBER and LOCATION.


Circulating items can be checked out for 3 weeks with your WCC ID.

RESERVE books are on the first floor and must be used in the library.

Books with the location CIRCULATING COLLECTION are on the second and third floors.
