Library Catalog :

The online catalog may be searched for eBooks and print titles held at all VC library or resource center locations. Searches may be limited by campus or by eBook availability. Additionally, results may be sorted by title, author, or publication date. Book Collections: Print and Electronic Print Collections : The Vernon College Library System maintains print collections in Vernon, Century City Center, and Skills Training Center. Collections include reference materials as well as general circulating titles supporting all academic areas. Circulation : Books may be borrowed for a period of up to 3 months; however, these books are subject to recall if they are in demand. Books from the McNaughton section may be checked out for two weeks.


E-books are conveniently accessible from the library catalog.

To limit your search to online availability:

➢ Go to the library catalog. ➢ Enter your search term/s. ➢ Use the filters in the left menu bar to limit your results to e-books. ➢ Use the drop-down menu to sort your results by author, title, relevance, publication date, etc.

➢ Click on Downloadable to checkout and download the e-book.

Checking-out and Downloading eBooks : E-books can be checked out and downloaded to an iPad, PC, or other personal device. E-books are loaned for a period of 1 – 7 days. Once the checkout period has expired, the book is rendered inaccessible and automatically returned for use by other patrons. Books may also be returned any time prior to the date due. If the book is in use, you will be given the option of placing the book on hold. Once the book is available, you will be notified via email and given 2 days in which to checkout the book before it is released from the hold. Access to Print Collection on Vernon Campus Online instructors and faculty based in Wichita Falls may request books from the main collection in Vernon. Requests may be submitted in person at any library location or filed electronically via the Interlibrary Loan form accessible from the library homepage. Upon receipt of your request, the books will be mailed to your designated campus. Books can be returned to any VC library location.
