The BRCC librarians will be visiting all sites beginning in October. Library Orientations were offered to each location in September, and the librarians connected with many students.

At Mid-city, the library has witnessed very high demand these past few weeks. Students have been visiting the space to do research, utilize the study rooms, and consult with the librarians. A few faculty members have also stopped in to ask questions. Which you are highly encouraged to do!

As a friendly reminder if you give a library assignment, be sure to include a copy for the library. It is helpful to have this information for accreditation purposes. We have seen all sorts of interesting assignments. Some have included locating a journal article that ties trigonometry to a student's major, an assignment that asks students to locate information about data management in the cloud, and an English assignment that looks at multiculturalism in entertainment. These are all fascinating topics, and we are always up for new challenges!
The library offers tours of the space and all of the resources available. Students on the tour have often remarked that they didn't know the library was so large, that there were so many different types of material, and that they had so many study space options available to them. Highlights of the tour include the archives, the American Freedom Shrine, and reading room which often hosts student activities and events. There is a lot to see at your BRCC Magnolia Library.

The library continues to promote e-Books. Our displays are now traveling to other sites. Be on the lookout for these informative displays, and if you are curious about how to access the e-Books, or what is included with them, ask any of the librarians. We would be delighted to give you a demonstration!
