How to search for books

  • To request materials and fully access all electronic resources, sign in with your B Number (example: B00999999) and PIN, birth date MMDDYY (last two digits of birth date for YY). 

  • Select the "Everything" tab to search EFSC's complete collection of library materials, including physical books and journals, media, electronic resources, and articles.

  • Select "Library Catalog" to search for physical books and journals, selected electronic resources, media, and other material. This search does not include individual articles.

  • Select "Articles & More" to search for online articles and other electronic resources.

  • On the results list you can tell what type of item it is (e.g., book, eBook, DVD), by the icon underneath the title.

  • For print books and DVD's, look for the Call Number in between the availability and campus location information.

  • The "Filter Results By" feature allows you to narrow or revise your search using filters such as location, physical format, and publication date. 

Filter Search Results menu






  • Default Library Search is Keyword.  There is an Advanced Search option that lets you search by specific fields like Author, Title, or ISBN Number, and you can choose a specific Format or Publication Date.

  • Default Library location is Eastern Florida State College. You can change this to the campus that you use the most - ex. Cocoa Campus.

  • Tips if you get no results in a Library Search:  

    • think of other words (synonyms) for your topic

    • type in just one or two words for keywords, not an entire phrase or sentence

The EFSC Libraries use the Library of Congress Classification System to arrange print books and videos on the shelves.  LC Call numbers begin with a letter of the alphabet or a combination of two letters.  Library of Congress Classification - abbreviated version.
