Choosing a book
The SCC/SFCC library holds 1000s of fiction and non-fiction books in both PRINT and EBOOK formats.
(SCC students may also borrow books from partner libraries at GU, NIC, and LCSC.)
To find a book for your HEALTH 102 assignment, try searching the Library Catalog or the eBook Collection database.
Try a search on subjects like these:
Health and hygiene Happiness
Physical fitness Sexuality
Adjustment (Psychology) Stress
Substance use Sleep

Find ebooks on a wide variety of topics using the library database, eBook Collection.
To find articles on a particular topic, search the selected databases below.
If you don't easily find what you need, contact a librarian for help.
Because library databases like ProQuest contain millions of articles, we can use more complex search terms than when we search book collections.
Try searching for articles on a multifaceted topic. Here are example searches:
"college students" AND wellness
"college students" AND "self esteem"
parenting AND stress
adolescents AND "coming out"
exercise AND children AND "self esteem"
