Looking for your course textbook?

Some, but not all, of the textbooks used each semester are on reserve at the library's front desk. Students may use a textbook for two hours in the library, or make copies for 10 cents per page.

Please contact the library at 617-217-9449 or email to check to see if a particular textbook is on reserve.

Google Books

While many in-print books are limited to snippet views, Google Books can be a useful tool to search the entire contents of books. When you find a book that seems useful, check the BSC Library catalog, the BPL catalog, or ebrary to see if you can access the full text.
