Off-Campus Access

Online library tools, including OneSearch, the catalog, and article databases, can be accessed from off campus by current BC students, staff, and faculty. That means that when you're at home (or at work or on vacation or anywhere with a computer hooked up to the Internet), you can get access to the same resources available in the Library.

To get started, you will need to access the Library's homepage and choose how you want to do your research. You have the option of using the catalog (for books & e-books), OneSearch (for books, e-books and articles), or accessing a specific database (for articles) from an alphabetical list or by subject.

When using the catalog and/or OneSearch from off-campus, full-text access to e-books and articles will be provided after you have authenticated using your BC email ID and password (see detailed information below).

Databases (like JSTOR) that can be accessed from off campus will have at least one of the following icons next to them:
