The Library has acquired access to a collection of nearly 600 electronic books from the Harold Bloom editions of literary criticism. Individual titles will be available through the online catalog, or you can search the entire collection by looking for Infobase eBooks on the Databases page of the website.
Welcome to Bucks, and to Learning Resources! We’re looking forward to helping you succeed. Learning Resources includes the Library, the Open Access Computer Lab, Media Lab (for working on multimedia assignments), the TLC (for technology help), the Tutoring Center, and the offices of the Virtual Campus (Online Learning). All this is conveniently located in the Library building. We’re the busiest place on campus–and you need to come in anyway to get your student ID card–so stop by and check us out!
By the way, you can like Bucks Learning Resources and Bucks Library on Facebook!
Librarians and Library staff have been hard at work this summer making some adjustments to the Library’s Reference Area in your award-winning Library. Upon entering, you will be greeted by a Learning Resources staff member at the new Welcome Desk who will be happy to assist you in your Library/Learning Resources quest.
Look to your left and you will see a friendly librarian, just beyond the self check-out station (yes, you can check out library books yourself!). Librarians are waiting to help you with research for your assignments, whether you are looking for books and articles, media content, or other information. We’re hoping reference conversations will happen easier in this spot, tucked away from the business
Look to your right and you will see that we have redesigned this side of the Reference Area to open up more table space and to help you find your way to the Media Lab (formerly known as MInDSpace). This adjustment involved moving all of those bookcases, and before that could happen we had to move all of the big, heavy reference books! This was an enormous job as you may imagine, but during the process we were able to evaluate the collection to make sure our reference books are current and relevant to the courses taught at Bucks.
Make sure to check out our Print and Copy Center where you can pick up your printed documents, make photocopies, and use the Book Scanner to copy book pages and documents directly to email or a USB drive.
This is only the tip of the iceberg. The Learning Resources Department (housed in the Library Building) can also help you find a tutor, technology help, and assistance with virtual courses while loaning out laptops and books, and making your Student ID! Ask at the Welcome Desk for more details!
Tom Fenning passed away on Monday, June 9, 2014. He was 93. He enjoyed spending his time volunteering at BCCC, where he took many classes in language and writing. He also volunteered at local elementary schools sharing his love of poetry and writing. He was an inspiration to us all and will be missed. We are grateful for his service to the College and community.
We’ve been providing virtual reference service during the winter months. The Newtown Campus Library reopens on Sundays, 1:00pm-5:30pm beginning April 6th. We’ll be open on Sundays through the end of the spring semester.
