We subscribe to a large number of subscription databases and journals to support research and scholarship at BLS. Below are lists of selected databases organized by topic.

Most databases can be accessed off-site by members of the BLS community by using the school proxy server (instructions) or by obtaining a user name and password from a librarian.

You can also browse our Complete Database List, or search our library catalog for additional holdings. To identify electronic periodicals by topic, please consult our E-Journals.
