The results of broad-band BVR C IJHKL' photometry of late-type stars are used to define a bolometric correction BC 7 as a function of (V-I) c or (R -I) c , where m bol = J c + BC 7 . The bolometric corrections BC# and BC Ä are also derived, and simple analytic expressions are given for BC 7 , BC^, and BC^ as functions of color index.
