Helpful Research Tip

  • One way to find additional promising sources for your paper is to look at the footnotes of a useful, relatively recent source. 

Search & Find Online Books

Many books are now available in ebook format to support your research. Use the library catalog to find both print and ebooks.

To access online books from the library:

  • Limit your library catalog search to "online content" from the library home page or limit your search results to "available online" in the upper right corner of your search results page. 
  • Choose books that include a link to "Full Text Available at HathiTrust" to read them online. These books are scanned copies of print books held in the library collection. To access the online version, sign in to HathTrust with your BC credentials.  For help, watch our video about accessing HathiTrust online books and visit our HathiTrust Emergency Access page
