Movie suggestions needed!

Harpo and Chico Marx in "The Incredible Jewel Robbery"
It's that time of year again! The library needs your suggestions for our SGA Movie Collection! If it's a recent movie that has just hit the shelves, or something older and more obscure that you're sad we don't already have, or anything in between, we want to know about it. We've placed our Suggestion Box on the Circulation Desk, so please drop by to toss in your ideas, or send them to us at

A HUGE thank you to SGA for providing the funds to expand our collection!

Digging In

Mid-Terms are over and already the student energy is up in the Library. Now is the time to make sure that your grades will be what you want them to be.

One proven method of improving your GPA is to take advantage of such support services as tutoring. The Academic Resource Center provides peer-supported assistance through the Writing Center and the Math Lab. The ARC also provides drop-in and individualized tutoring in biology, accounting, psychology, and other subjects. 

Find out more about these and other tutoring opportunities from the ARC webpage.  Contact Stacey Thornberry at or 226-4750 with any questions.

Check out the library's database trials!

October is Database Trial month! Heavily sponsored through the Network of Alabama Academic Libraries (NAAL), the trials offer free access to new and emerging databases, or sometimes older databases, to which we don't currently subscribe (you may find some good full-text articles that we'd usually have to get through Interlibrary Loan!). Most trials run through the end of the month, so be sure to check them out while you're doing your research!

To get to the Database Trial page:  (You'll need to login with your BSC email information.)
