Welcome, new and returning students!

Fall semester at BSC begins September 2, and the library is open for business! If you're a new student and feeling quizzical, please take a look at the Top 10 library questions asked by new students. We'll be offering library orientation sessions for first-year and transfer students on Tuesday, September 1, at 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. If you're an old-timer - welcome back! Please feel free to stop by and check out a new book, DVD or CD. We've gotten quite a few materials in over the summer, including a generous gift of around 1500 classical music CDs. A dozen additional computer workstations also made their way into the library over the past month; six are on the first floor and six on the ground floor (in the ARC room near the back - where all the computers have been loaded with additional software for theater design students). All in all, it's been a good summer - but we missed the energy that a full contingent of BSC students and faculty brings to the library. We're glad you're back - and hope to see you soon!

Summer break = shorter library hours

July 31 was the final day of finals for the summer session here at BSC. Fall classes will begin on September 2. In the meantime... school's out! The library will be open Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm, during the month of August, and will not offer chat reference service during this month. In September, feeling happy and refreshed, we will resume our regular hours of operation.
