With over 154,000 books & 8,000 DVDs & Videos in the Bentley University Library's Collection, the Library Catalog is a great place to find primary and secondary sources for your project.
WorldCat.org lets users search the collections of thousands of libraries around the world. Users can search for popular books, music CDs and videos. Users may also find article citations with links to their full text, authoritative research materials such as documents and photos of local or historic significance and digital versions of rate items that are not available to the public.
When you find titles of interest, you can use the Bentley Library's Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service to retrieve books, articles and even DVDs.
