There are many sources in the library where one can locate journals - which contain the articles - required for research. There is the traditional method of print and microfilm, where you have to go to the library and photocopy or print out the information you need.
We also subscribe to a plethora of on-line databases, which provide access to the full text journal on-line. Students are able to type in a variety of topics, for instance "nursing, HIPAA, wound care" either separately or together as a string, and the databases searches and finds a multitude of information in the form of articles which can be accessed. BCC students are able to access the databases from home.
In addition, we have provided links to "open source" journals and articles, which means that the publisher is "allowing" the journal and articles within to be accessed for free.

It includes journals we have access to within the many databases to which we subscribe.
