CSS101: College Success Strategies: Library Orientation

Work smarter, not harder! Learn about academic support services, library and online resources that will help you gain skills and competencies to succeed at BCC and beyond!

What's within these pages

With the rapid proliferation of online information, college students need libraries now more than ever. Yes, you can find lots of info from the web, but that's only scratching the surface. Academic research requires you to dig deeper: find high quality resources that are simply not available via conventional search engines, due to copyright protection. Use the web to locate general information, then use library research tools to access the full content of more in-depth materials. Use this guide to learn how! 

Please be sure to read the sub pages in this orientation, for they contain essential info about accessing library tools and resources from off campus.
