Find Books

Books Not Available at BC

Library systems and services make it possible for members of the BC community to find and obtain books and other materials from beyond the walls of the BC Libraries themselves. These systems and services include:

Search For Books in the BC Collections

Use the catalog to find books, DVDs, and other types of materials available at BC.

Search the Catalog by Keyword(s) in Subject



To do complex keyword searches for books on a topic, we recommend using the Advanced Search because you can:

  • choose where your keywords will appear (title or subject, for instance)
  • limit your results by material type (DVD for instance) or language

TIP: When you go to the shelf to find your book, look at the others nearby; they may be useful, too.

Boston Library Consortium

The Boston Library Consortium is an association of university libraries located in New England. As a student at Boston College, you can get a BLC Consortium borrowing card that will allow you to borrow books from these libraries. BLC Libraries in the area include Boston University, Brandeis, and Northeastern. You can obtain a BLC borrowing card at the O'Neill Library.
