Library Best Sellers

Best Sellers

Book titles on the New York Times Best Sellers list are selected each month for STC libraries.  The books are highlighted in each campus library and may be checked out by any STC library user.  Check available titles on the list and request any title that is not housed in your campus library by placing a hold on the item record in Discovery Search or by submitting a Campus to Campus request.  The book will be delivered to your campus as soon as it is available.

Website Upgrade

Library Website Upgrade

We are excited to announce that our new and refreshed South Texas College Library website is live. The updated site includes changes to navigation, with collapsible menus for the mobile version. We have also improved the structure of our content to make it easier to find and more accessible to persons with disabilities. There’s a host of smaller but impactful changes, all to make your experience of our site that much better for you.

Additionally, Discovery Search now has the capability of searching the library’s physical collection, most of the library’s research databases, and a new collection of online open educational resources.  The link to the Library Catalog is no longer available since the content is now in Discovery Search.

Amongst the new features, the site contains social media buttons for Facebook and Instagram to foster improved communication with our patrons. We will be constantly updating our content with helpful information, blogs, events, and announcements in the Library News section.

We invite you to visit our Library Services homepage to try out these new features.
