The library’s online catalog is a database comprised of all the resources, books and other materials, housed within the library.  If you are interested in borrowing a book from the Brandon campus library, fill out the Interlibrary Loan Request form or contact your local librarian, Cynthia Dixon.


Databases are organized collections of data. The Southern Tech libraries subscribe to two very well known database collections, LIRN and Ebscohost, that house hundreds of thousands of newspaper, magazine, and  journal articles specified for each programs educational need.
