Find It at BC

Resources tailored to this core curriculum class.

Where's the Article?

If you search a database and the full article's not there, don't despair.  Look for the "FindIt" button:  or FindIt@BC.  Find It will offer help including:

  1. If BC has the full text in another database, you will be taken to a list of databases for the full text. 
  2. If BC subscribes to the print journal where the article appeared, the Catalog will say Find in Library and you can check which library or libraries may have the year/issue you need and where it is located.
  3. If the article is not available online or in print at BC, use the link to Request the item. We can usually get the article from another library within a few days and email it to you.

Finding Materials in the Boston College Libraries

Catalog Tips

By Title or Author

On the Advanced Search screen, change the "Anywhere in record" drop-down to "Title" to locate a specific work or to "Author/Creator" to find books written by a particular chemist.
 

Searching by Subject

On the Advanced Search screen, change the "Anywhere in record" drop-down to "Subject" and enter chemistry
(or, more specialized terms, such as: "chemical kinetics"; metathesis; "organic compounds"; porphyrins).

Alternatively, if you are looking for materials on a more specific topic in chemistry, use "Anywhere in record":
To find material on metals and enzymes, type: metal* AND enzym*
(The "*" is a truncation symbol that will retrieve various forms of each word: metal, metals, metallic, enzyme, enzymes, enzymatic)
