Finding Books

To find books on a particular topic, use the Carteret CC Library Catalog. All of the library's print resources, including books, encyclopedias, dictionaries, handbooks, and DVDs, are available in the catalog.

Once you’ve found a book in the catalog, you’ll want to find it on the shelf using the Call Number and Location.  While most collections circulate, books located in the Reference Collection can only be used in the library.

Use these call number ranges to browse the shelves for culinary-related books:

TX 341-641 -- Nutrition, Foods, & Food Supply

TX 642-840 -- Cooking

TX 851-885 -- Dining-Room Service

Students new to using eBooks often have questions about what they are, how to search for them, and how to use them. eBooks are generally no different than print books--the vast majority of eBooks have print counterparts. While eBooks are electronic resources, they are not web resources--they are books--so don't be afraid to use them in your research.

CCC students have access to eBooks through a handful of NC LIVE databases.You can search the individual collections by clicking on the database name below or you can search the NCLIVE eBook collection by using the eBooks search box.

Note: If you are off-campus, you will need to log in to access NCLIVE. Log in with your campus username and password OR enter your CCC Library card number.
