Getting print material from a distance

Getting print material

We subscribe to many online resources that can be found in our Library Catalog and accessed from off-campus with your BC login. If the item you need is only available in print, find out how you can access library material when you cannot come to campus. Delivery of print material is a free service for BC students and faculty.
