LCC Library

Writing Research Papers: Books

This guide is intended to provide help with topic selection, research tips and strategies, and citing sources.



The LCC Library owns almost 100,000 ebooks. Our ebooks were originally published on paper, but are now completely online. You can find them by searching our online catalog. Most people view them using an Internet browser, such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or Google Chrome.


But you can also download most of our ebooks to your personal device and keep them for a limited period of time. We buy ebooks from a variety of publishers, and the process is different depending on the vendor and the device. If you need more information or help, ask a librarian!

Borrow books, videos and more from other libraries

Is the LCC Library closed? Or do we not have what you want and you're in a hurry? It happens sometimes.

Did you know that, as an LCC student, you can check out books, videos, audio CDs, and other items at any of the UO Libraries? All you need is your L# and photo ID, and it's free!

When you're finished with the item, you can return it to the LCC Library, and we'll send it back to UO for you!
