The Jonathan Edwards Library provides current BCC students, faculty and staff a growing number of  Online Reference Databases.   As with many of our databases, authentication is necessary for off-site access, and is limited to current BCC students, faculty and staff. Click on the Online link above, or go to the Reference tab and click on the Online Reference sub-tab to access such online reference resources as Britannica, Grove Art,  Britannica Image Quest and Science Online, as well as the Credo and Gale Reference databases, which contain several hundred reference  resources.  Click here for the brochure on using Online Reference Databases.


The Jonathan Edwards Library also houses an extensive print reference collection at the main campus.  Print Reference material does not circulate  and is accessible only when the Library is open Monday through Friday.



Subjects Guides provide ready reference resource including links to online reference, bibliographies of texts in our collection, links to primary sources and websites.  These guides are created by Library Staff, and are vetted for validity of information, educational content, scope and authority.  We are  currently creating new subject guides to specific subject areas, and are always updating these pages.
