Library for Online Students

This guide will help online and distance students understand and access library services. It is also a good help for on-campus students who need to access library resources from home.


This guide is specifically designed for students who are enrolled in one or more online classes at BPCC. It will direct you to all of the resources we have to support you in your studies and teach you how to most effectively use those resources. 

We recommend starting with our video tutorials. They will give you a good introduction to the library, its resources, and how to use them.
