Entrepreneurship/Small Business: Books & eBooks

This guide presents research information on entrepreneurship and running a small business.

Searching for Books at BCC Libraries

Use the library catalog to find print books and ebooks.  The SAILS Library Catalog allows BCC students to request books (as well as DVDs, music CDs, and audiobooks) by clicking "Place Hold" located to the right of the catalog description of the item.  You will need to activate your BCC Campus Card with the library to place holds and borrow items from a BCC library.


     Our ebrary database contains approximately 27,000+ ebooks in a wide variety of subject areas specifically geared to undergraduate college students.  There are numerous ebooks in entrepreneurship and small business that you can access using our online catalog, as each title in ebrary has it's own individual catalog record accessble by keyword, author, title or subject search.  You can also access books in ebrary by going directly to the ebrary database using the "Articles" tab on the "Quick Search" box."

Google Book Search

Search the Catalog for books/e-books on entrepreneurship or small business

      After you have done the above search for books under the keyword entrepreneurship you may want to limit the results to just books (print books) located at one of the BCC libraries, as this results list is for all the libraries in the SAILS network.   If you want to limit the list to just books at the BCC Fall River library, for example, click on More,  then Bristol CC - Fall River as noted below.  The resulting list of books will only be those at that location.  E-books, however, can be accessed at any campus.  They can also be accessed remotely by inputting the barcode number on the back of your BCC Campus Card when prompted.


    When a book gets cataloged, either one or more subject headings are assigned to it.  The BCC libraries, as well as other college and university libraries and public libraries, use Library of Congress subject headings.  Below are a few subject headings that you might want to try (click on the subject heading) to access even more resources:
