Library Trials

No, not the Perry Mason, jury and court room kind. You may have noticed on the Library home page a new graphic listing database trials. Through the several consortia in which the BSC library participates, we have the opportunity to try databases which may be of interest to the College community. These trials are usually for a limited time period, generally for a few weeks to a month. Try out the trials and let us know what you think of these products! Steve Laughlin

New Books and Periodicals Shelves Relocated!

The new book shelves, as well as the current newspaper shelves have been moved to a new location at the front of the main floor. As you can see from the photo, the new location is between the entrance and exit doors. We have also added a current magazine browsing area. The current issues of a dozen popular magazines may now be found on the circular table in front of the new book shelves. Enjoy!! Steve Laughlin
