Find Books in Maxwell Library
Limit your search by location
An excellent way to limit your search to books located in the ERC is to go to the Advanced Search page and click on the Collection tab below the search boxes. Here, you can limit to books in specific collections of the ERC, such as picture books, children's fiction books, textbooks, etc.
Find Books using the Commonwealth Catalog
Search the Massachusetts Commonwealth Catalog to access millions of items at participating libraries across Massachusetts to find the books, DVDs, and music you’re looking for.
If we don't have a children's or young adult book you want at Maxwell Library, try this statewide catalog to see if another MA library has it. If you find a book you want in the Commonwealth Catalog, you can select and order it online and have it sent to you at BSU (the item will go to the Maxwell Library Circulation Desk).
