Develop a broad understanding of your topic by locating and reading a book. Books are available in both print and digital (e-book) formats. In addition to our library, LCC students may borrow books from academic libraries throughout Ohio using the OhioLINK system.

Some tips for searching the Library catalog:

  • Use a Keyword search to find books about a certain topic.
  • Use a Title search to find a specific book when you have the title.
  • Use the Author search to find books written by a certain author.
  • Click the Subjects of useful titles to find books on related subjects. Some relevant subject headings include:

    • HN1-995 Social history and conditions. Social problems. Social reform

Lakeland Community College is part of a larger library consortium called OhioLink.  If the Lakeland Library doesn't have the book that you want, you can request it for free through OhioLink.  It takes a bit longer to get the book this way, so make sure you have a few days head start.
