ENC1101 Hobson Marvin Pruitt: Books

Search for Books

In the library catalog search box type in the title, "Their Eyes Were Watching God" to see all of the materials we have about the book. You may want to limit your search to the Pruitt Campus library by clicking the drop down menu that says "All Campuses" and selecting "Pruitt." You can also limit your results to physical books in the library by clicking the drop down menu next to "Format" and selecting "Books."

After you click search you will see a list of results. If you click the title of the book on the results list you will see more information about the book. Towards the bottom of the page you should see the location of the book.  If you click the link that says Indian River/Pruitt you can see if the book is available to be checked out from the library.

When to Use the Online Catalog

The catalog is your main access point to locate physical materials found within the library, as well as eBooks and eAudiobooks. Print books, eBooks, print journals, DVDs, audiobooks, and government publications can all be found by conducting a keyword, author, title, or subject search in the catalog. You may also find Internet resources in the catalog. Click here to access IRSC's online library catalog

The catalog search will look for words in the title, abstract, major subject headings, and (sometimes) tables of content. When searching the catalog, it is important to remember that you are not searching the full text of these items. For this reason, you will get a much smaller, but more precise, return on a search than you would in a database or Internet search. If you have a very narrow search term, you will need to use broader terms to find materials on the subject. 

Request an Item

IRSC can borrow many different titles from other libraries. If you have a specific title you want, you can search for it using the IRSC full catalog by changing the At search to All 28 Colleges. If you find the title there, click on the college name at the bottom of the record and then click 'Request' to request the book from that college. If you are looking for a specific article or book not found in the catalog, use the Request an Item form below to borrow the material from another library.
