Learning Resources

Welcome to BRCC Libraries: We've got you covered!

The BRCC Libraries identify and meet educational and research needs to increase information literacy, life-long learning, and quality of life. This is done by providing quality information services and instruction to students, faculty, staff, and the learning communities at large.

The Magnolia Library offers a diverse collection of books, periodicals, videos, and on-line resources. As a member of LOUIS: the Louisiana Library Network, we are able to provide access to our Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) as well as to the OPACs of surrounding institutions. Our online resources include over 84,000 full-text books available through the EBSCOhost eBook Collection and a variety of databases to assist you with your scholarly research.

We have open access computers, printers, and copiers available for public use. Tours and bibliographic instruction sessions may be scheduled and may be tailored to meet the needs of classes and individuals. Our virtual tour is available to help you locate just what you’re looking for in our facility. Media equipment is available for faculty checkout. Contact the Reference Desk ( (225) 216-8555) for specific borrowing policies, availability, and equipment offered.

Like all libraries, the Magnolia Library collects fines on overdue items. It is the student’s responsibility to make themselves aware of the borrowing policies, lending terms, the amount of fines, and how they are incurred. Details about the library’s borrowing policies and fines can be found on the Library Information LibGuide page. The library must receive proof that all fines have been paid at the Bursar’s Office before students are able to receive grades or register for classes.
