Finding E-Books in the Library Collection

When the Brooklyn College Library is closed for long periods, as it has been since March 2020 during a period of online instruction, you may not visit the Library to take out printed books. You can, however, still search for and find electronic books in the Library collection. Begin your search for books in OneSearch.
