CIT140: Electronic Game Development I (Patacchiola)

Searching for Books at BCC Libraries

Use the library catalog to find print books, electronic books, and streaming videos. The HELM Library Catalog allows BCC students to request books from any HELM Library through the catalog interface as long as the student has registered their BCC Campus Card.  You can place a HOLD on a book using your 900#.

Please NOTE we are not loaning print books at this time.  The libraries are currently working on a plan for contact-less pick up.  An announcement will be coming soon.

Why should I look in books?

Why should you do research in books?

  • Books provide in-depth coverage of a topic
  • Books often provide valuable background information on a topic
  • Books can also provide an overview of all issues pertaining to a topic
  • Books can lead readers to other sources through their bibliographies

You do not necessarily have to read an entire book for every research paper you have to do.  Utilize the index and the chapter titles to narrow down which section of the book is most pertinent to your research.
