Ask a Librarian

The Library never sleeps! Chat live with a Librarian: 24 hours a day; 7 days a week. Librarians here at BCC or at other CUNY colleges will most likely answer your question during the hours the library is open. After hours, you’ll get answers from librarians at colleges across the country and the world.


To request a library instruction class, send an email to Library Instruction  or contact Ms. Ronise Springer, ext. 5433.
Please be sure to have at least two dates in mind.

1. Go to E-Resources:
2. Select a database
3. Enter your CUNY Login credentials,  username: ; password: CUNY Login password.  If you dont’t get  access, please visit the Library Circulation desk, 2nd floor or sent an email to Access Services

We will be glad to assist you with creating an assignment. Please feel free to make
an appointment with your Subject Liaison Librarian or call the Reference Desk,
ext. 5974.

Books and articles not available at BCC or any of the other CUNY colleges can be
requested through the ILLiad interlibrary loan service.

Complete the Reserve Submission Form located under the Faculty Resources heading on the E-Reserves page.

Use Quick Search on the library website and select Journals.

Current BCC faculty and staff may borrow a laptop for the semester on a first come first serve basis. A valid BCC ID is required. If your library fines are $25 or more, Library privileges are suspended and items can not be checked  out.
