Using Library Catalogs

Search the VSC Library Catalog
Link to the catalog to search for books, videos and other media. You may search by keyword, author or title.  For more precise results for subject searching, use Library of Congress Subject Headings that may include--but are not limited to--these examples:

Champlain, Lake
Johnson Vt.: Town--History
Lamoille County Vt.--History
Regional planning--Vermont
Vermont--Description and travel
Vermont--Politics and government
Vermont--Social life and customs

Use Advanced Search to find videorecordings and DVDs such as Life in Lamoille researched by students in Dr. Bill Doyle's Vermont history classes at JSC in collaboration with Peregrine Productions.  


Beyond the VSC Library Catalog

Search the WorldCat database to identify, locate and request materials from libraries throughout the nation and the world. Use Library of Congress Subject Headings such as those listed above for precision searching.  Interlibrary loan links are provided in search results for requesting materials not owned by our library.

Interlibrary Loan

When you locate books and media that are owned by other libraries, you may request items through interlibrary loan.  Check Interlibrary Loan Services for more information.


    The VSC Library Catalog

    This is the combined catalog of the holdings for Castleton State, Johnson State, Lyndon State and the Vermont Community and Technical Colleges. Thousands of titles include books, maps, government documents, audiovisual materials, and nonprint items. Members of the JSC academic community may request interlibrary loan for items not held in our library collection. Use the Multiple Library Search option to place requests for items located outside the VSC system, including the University of Vermont.


    Vermont Historical Society Holdings

    The holdings of the Vermont Historical Society Library are now included in the VSC Library Catalog.  Those titles are not available for interlibrary loan and must be used at the Barre, Vermont location.
