BCC Libraries offer a variety of databases in which you can locate magazine, newspaper, trade, and scholarly journal articles. We also have databases that offer streaming videos and ebooks.
If you live, work, or go to school in Massachusetts, you can have access to all of the remotely accessable electronic databases at the Boston Public Library. These added resources are available via an ecard that you can obtain by registering at the Boston Public Library website or following the instructions that we have at our "Online Reference Databases" page for getting an ecard from the BPL.
You may see the following icons on databases, journals, or websites.

Boolean operators (and, or, not) can be used when searching in most databases. They can be very, very helpful in narrowing down your search results! Please watch the short video below to see how they can be used.
