    Find Materials at the Library

    Search    By      

    Search tips:

    When searching for a research topic, use a Keyword search to explore. When you find something that fits your topic, look at the subject headings.  Then use those subject headings as your search terms to find more materials on your topic.

    When searching by Author, try the last name, then first. "Sagan, Carl" will be more successful than "Carl Sagan."

    Your Mystic Card (BSC student id) is required for all circulation transactions.
