Getting Started

Use the library’s on line catalog to find circulating and reference materials, including books and audio-visual resources. Our catalog uses the Library of Congress (LC) classification system and subject headings. LC assigns call numbers (letters and numerals) according to the book’s primary subject. Many computer programming materials will begin with QA or TK.

Some quick catalog search tips:

  • The catalog defaults to all the libraries in the SAILS network. To search all Bristol Community College Libraries,  after your initial search select "Search BCC Titles" found at the top left hand corner.
  • Truncate with “$” (for example, combust$ will bring up combustion, combustibility, combustible, etc.)
  • Put phrases in quotes " ":
    • "Javascript" or 
    • "C++" or 
    • "Programming Languages"
  • Use Advance Search to limit by material type (e.g., DVD)
  • Click on  the “Catalog Record” and use the subject term links near the bottom to find additional materials.
