A library catalog is a register (sometimes a database) of all bibliographic items held within that library. Libraries used to function through maintaining the card catalog. Now, it is much easier to find materials because most catalogs are online!

It is important to know what a catalog is and how it functions, so that you can use other libraries in the future! 

TCC Library's catalog is called Discovery. It is located on the homepage of the TCC Library. It is the giant search bar. Discovery is special because in addition to items available for checkout, it will also show you items that may only be available for in-library use, or items that we do not hold but may be available through Interlibrary Loan (ILL) items from another library.
