Links below search book collections. LVC Books searches books--ebooks and print--that LVC owns. WorldCat is a link to a catalog that will search 77,000 library collections from around the world. If you do use WorldCat, you may also need to utilize a service called ILL to request a copy of the book. Also, make sure to limit your WorldCat search to books.

Interlibrary Loan, or Tipasa, is a service that will provide you with books that LVC does not own.
Most of the library's databases will provide a Looking for Full Text? link on results that don't provide PDF full-text. If that Looking for Full-Text? link fails, you'll see a blue button for Request this Item through LVC Tipasa.
You can also request a book via interlibrary loan from the library's homepage. Via interlibrary loan, we'll borrow the book from another library for you and will notify you via email when your book arrives.
How long does it take?
Books will take a bit longer (they have to come through the mail)--allow two weeks.
