Searching for Books

This guide provides four avenues for searching for books. 

  • OPAC. The OPAC is the online catalog which searches for books available through the Beacon College Library.  Any books you find in the OPAC are books that Beacon owns and that are in the library.  Always start your search for books here.  However, if you cannot find anything in the OPAC, you can move onto Google Books or WorldCat.
  • Leesburg Public Library Catalog. As a Beacon student, you can become a member of the Leesburg Public Library, located across from the Beacon College Library. You must provide a photo i.d. and proof of address when opening an account.  Please see a Librarian at the Public Library for assistance.
  • Google Books. Google Books is a collection of books organized by Google.  This is a listing of books that exist, not just books that Beacon owns.  If you find a book that you want in Google Books, you can use Interlibrary Loan to request it.  Refer to the Interlibrary Loan tab at the top of the page, or see a librarian, for assistance.
  • WorldCat.  WorldCat is a comprehensive database of published works.  It is a database of books that exist, not just books that Beaconowns. If you find a book that you want in WorldCat, you can use Interlibrary Loan to request it.  Refer to the Interlibrary Loan tab at the top of the page, or see a librarian, for assistance.
