Online Books

These publishers' websites provide a central access point for books, textbooks, and journals by the publishers.

A Word about WorldCat

WorldCat is a very large catalog of library holdings in the U.S. and beyond.

Search for books on your topic and:

  • See which ones BC owns
  • See which libraries worldwide own each book
  • Order the books BC does not own from other libraries using the Find it button


Search For Books in the BC Collections

Search the Boston College Libraries to find books, DVDs and other types of materials available at BC.

Search the Boston College Libraries 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.
