On-site Collections

Library holdings support the college's programs and interests for the benefit of the entire community. They include 58,000 book volumes, 270 periodical subscriptions, and collections of AV materials, sound recordings, microforms, and archival items. Holdings are cataloged or listed according to Library of Congress specifications, the Anglo- American Cataloging Rules, and other accepted standards of librarianship. BCC's online catalog contains records for books periodicals and most non-print holdings.

Electronic Resource Access

The online catalog provides direct access to our holdings and those of other C/W MARS member libraries. It interfaces with (and its records constitute part of) the larger, statewide Massachusetts Virtual Catalog. For items unavailable at BCC, you can do broader searches of these systems and use your BCC library card to make online requests for items to be delivered here.

The Library also provides access to many reference or research databases, including general and subject-specific periodical indexes and abstracts. These tools cover thousands of academic and popular journal titles and provide full-text content as well as citations. They may be accessed directly from our web page in the Library, the main Computer Lab, or other BCC locations, including off-site centers such as the South County and Intermodel Centers. BCC students, faculty, and staff may obtain access from other remote locations by entering their library barcode number. The Library LibGuide page also provides links to hundreds of other relevant and authoritative sites.
