Online Databases

Off Campus Access
The BRCC Library's online databases may be accessed off-campus with your BRCC Library User ID number and your library PIN.

Faculty, staff, and students should log in to the databases with their campus ID number (Lnumber), which is at the top of each person's schedule in LoLA) as their Library user ID and their 6 digit birth date (mmddyy, i.e. 010294) as their PIN. The letter (L, N, H, etc.) in the user ID must be capitalized.

If you are unable to access the online databases from home, we may need to update your library account information. To verify the status of your Library privileges, please call (225) 216-8555 or email us at A librarian will be happy to assist you.  Please include your BRCC ID number in all correspondence with the Library.
