New Color Printer at BSC Library

The Library has a new COLOR PRINTER!!! The new HP Color LaserJet 4700n is located at the circulation desk, and may be used with the four PCs in the library to which scanners are attached. There are two PCs with scanners on the main floor and two on the ground floor in the ARC lab. The color printer funding was provided jointly by the Student Government Association (SGA) and the BSC Information Technology department. Our thanks to both! Steve Laughlin

Aaaaah... comfy furniture!

Thanks to the generosity of the Class of 2008, the Library now has some additional new furniture on the first floor -- including sofas, chairs with ottomans, and the ever-popular (but frequently misunderstood) "bongo stools." While the furniture looks elegant all by itself, it looks even better when in use... so please come on by, grab the reading material of your choice, and "set a spell!"

SGA and BSC Library add video games

We are happy to announce the addition of video games to our collection of leisure materials provided through the BSC Library and funded by the Student Government Association. The collection is small currently, but will grow. Feel free to suggest new titles. We currently have games for the Wii, XBOX 360 and PS3. We have also dedicated a new area of shelves on which our new video titles are displayed. As always, please feel free to suggest new titles. Steve Laughlin
