Access to Library Resources and Services


Access to any of the library's online resources is available in the library or on campus without password requirements.

BBCC students, staff, and faculty may access the library's online resources from off campus through the library's portal page.

Contractual agreements prohibit off campus access to online resources (other than our catalog) to any user other than registered BBCC students, staff, or faculty. Sharing passwords with non-BBCC associated users will result in academic and possibly legal charges being filed. Passwords may change periodically for security reasons.


The library offers the Books-by-Mail service to BBCC students living 50 miles or further in driving distance from the main campus. 

Catalog - Voyager, the library’s online catalog, includes the library’s book, video, CD, LP and eBook holdings.  Searches cover all collections except web based resources.  Access to Voyager is available via the library’s web page.  No password or login is required.
