Library Services Assistance During Colston Shutdown

The BCC Library Dept. is ready to assist the faculty and staff displaced from their offices in Colston Hall for the duration of the shutdown.  Please be aware that no food and drink should be in the Library anywhere. Thanks.

NOTE: Validation of IDs is critical to be able to work with all of the arrangements below.

Faculty need to bring their currently valid campus ID to the Circulation Desk in the Library and have it entered into the Library system. Thus, the library-validated IDs can then be used for each transaction when using library services.

Group Study Rooms

Eleven of the group study rooms will be reserved for use by faculty following our regular first come, first served sign-in procedure. Up to three faculty members will be assigned to a room at any one time. Each reservation will be for three hours.  Keys will be managed by the Library staff as usual. A sign-in sheet will also be maintained at the Media desk so that students can be referred to the correct room when they seek faculty.

Library Instruction Room (210) & Law Collection Classroom (314)

These spaces are being scheduled through Academic Affairs.  Please wait to hear from that office about room assignments.  These rooms are not available otherwise.  The Library faculty are relocating all February Library instruction to the assigned classrooms if possible.  Note:  Any classes that are scheduled into these spaces will return to their previously assigned classrooms once Colston goes back online.

Laptop Computers

Laptop loans are available for faculty at the Media desk.  Choose from a 3-hour, in-house loan or a semester loan.


Faculty should send printing requests through email to DUPLICATING@BCC.CUNY.EDU. Alternatively, use thumb drives for storage and take those to the Campus Service Center in RBSC to get documents printed.


As an alternative to printing large quantities, we have three scanning workstations that efficiently generate a .pdfs that can be shared via e-mail and/or then uploaded to course management environments (BlackBoard, e-portfolio, Akademos course site, etc.).

E-Reserves / Reserves

Faculty can request reserves and e-reserves as usual.  Complete the online form and upload scanned material if the library does not already own the book. Bring personal desk copies to the circulation desk if being put on reserve.
