Library Collection

The CCBC Library collection consists of approximately 40,000 titles including fiction, nonfiction, children's, reference, audiobooks, videos, and DVDs. 

The Library collection is organized according to the Dewey Decimal Classification System , which divides all knowledge into ten major groups, and assigns numbers to each of these groups. For example, books on education are given a 370 call number; religion books can be found at the 200s area. 

In addition, some types of materials are shelved together, such as fiction books, paperbacks, DVDs, etc., and letters are added to their call numbers to indicate their specific location.  For instance:

* The Library does not carry textbooks for all courses.  Sometimes instructors leave their own copies of textbooks at the Customer Service desk for student use, but these are for in-library use only.

To find out whether the Library carries a specific title - book, video, DVD or periodical - use B-VR-PAC, the Library's online public access catalog. For directions on how to use B-VR-PAC, please click here.  

To obtain a list of all books in the Spanish language, do a subject search for Book in Spanish in the online catalog.

After locating a book in the catalog, copy its call number, which will indicate its location on the shelves. To find out where books on a certain subject are located, consult the "Where are your books on...???" handout.

For a list of the books recently acquired by the Library, go to the What's New page.
