The Library Catalog allows users to search individual records for items in the library collection. These items in the library collection include: print books, e-books, magazines and journals, and audio-visual materials. The Lone Star College System Library Catalog allows users to search all of the LSCS libraries, as well as the Montgomery County Library and Harris County Library collections.
Searching the catalog is simple and easy! Follow these steps:
Go to the library catalog website http://librarycatalog.lonestar.edu
The catalog contains a listing of all books at the libraries in the Lone Star College system, the Montgomery County Public Libraries and the Harris County Public Libraries.
In the search box, type in the subject or topic you are trying to research. In this example, we are searching for materials on gun control in the LSC-Montgomery Library.
4. After clicking on “enter” or the white arrow in the red circle, we see that there are 35 items on gun control at the LSC-Montgomery Library.
You can limit your search to items you can check-out by selecting "Collection: Circulating Books" from the Collections/Media menu.
To limit your search to items located at Montgomery Library, select "Location: LSC-Montgomery" in the Locations menu.
To learn more about am item, click on one of the blue titles. For example, click on Gun Violence,, the fifth title down.
The last step is to determine the status of the book, whether it is a circulating book or a reference book, whether it is checked in or out, or is on order or is missing.
If you have successfully located a book that is available, write down the call number and go to the circulating book shelves. Then take the book to the circulation desk to check it out.
