Use the library catalog to find print books, electronic books, and streaming videos. The SAILS Library Catalog allows BCC students to request books from any SAILS Library through the catalog interface as long as the student has registered their BCC Campus Card.
Type your keywords into the search box on the library home page, then hit enter. You will be searching not only BCC titles, but books in the entire HELM Catalog.
BCC Libraries subscribe to collections of high quality, full-text books that you can view in their entirety online. Each of the links below describes the content; make sure you have your BCC campus card hand so you can provide your library ID# when/if prompted.
