To find the library's online databases go to BCPL's home page at and look under the Books and More tab > Research Databases. Or use this link to access the Research Databases page directly.

Next, scroll down the alphabetical list of databases and click on the title of the database you want to search. If you are working from anywhere outside of the library (home, work, school) you will be prompted to enter your BCPL library card number and your password. Card numbers should be entered without any spaces between the numbers. Passwords are originally set to be the last 4 digits of the primary phone number as it appears in your BCPL library account until/unless you change it.

Use the Subject filter, in the left panel, to narrow the list to show you certain categories of databases, like Business and Investing, Genealogy, Newspapers and Magazines, or Test Prep and Education.

Local newspapers can be found in "ProQuest: current and historic newspapers" database and/or in the "PressReader" database.
