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.

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.

The BRCC Library is here to support your success. Librarians are available to assist you both online and in person.

Our virtual and in-person library hours and the hours for the Mid-City Magnolia Library are Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Fridays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. while classes are in session. Between semesters, our hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Contacting the library is easy. We are available to answer your questions via email, chat, phone, and in person. Email us your questions at library@mybrcc.edu and chat with us by using the chat box to the lower left. Our phone number is 225-216-8555.

The library's electronic resources are on 24/7 and all are accessible on our homepage.  Look to the gray navigation bars on the left and find: 

the catalog (which can show you e-books available online through the library)
the library's database list which gives you access to over 100 online databases
and our library guides (LibGuides)--short guides to the subjects and programs BRCC offers, e.g. English, Psychology, Welding, Machine Tool Technology, and much more!

If you have a book checked out from the BRCC Library (or if you've checked out another item): the due date has been pushed back to August 21 due to the temporary campus closure, and you will not be charged a fine.  Please don't worry about returning the item by the original due date.  You can return it later, when our building reopens. Please do not attempt to return items while the building is closed.
