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.
