Books are an excellent way to broaden your knowledge or start researching a subject. There are multiple ways to find and get relevant books:

  • Resource lists prepared by your lecturers and librarians
  • The Library Search box on every page of the library website
  • Browse shelfmarks or e-book and digital collections to which the library has subscribed for you.

The library also has resources and services in case you can't find a book.


Looking for other books on the real or virtual shelves is another way to discover interesting titles. Look for the shelf marks corresponding to related topics. Online you can browse and search the e-book collections BCU has subscribed.
