Culinary Arts: Books & eBooks

This guide provides access to information in culinary arts, including baking and pastry arts.

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 culinary arts 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 our "Find articles" link under "Library Services" and then selecting ebrary from the A-Z title listing of our databases.
