Library Services

  • Purpose

    The BCCC Library is the center for information resources at the College. Assisted by a dedicated staff, students may explore resources in diverse formats, including books, print and electronic periodicals, reference tools, and indexes. Audiovisual materials such as CDs and DVDs are available and we also have streaming online instructional videos to support eLearning. Current holdings include 83,000 volumes. Most magazines, journals, and newspapers are available in digital form, known as e-journals. Access to e-journals is available to patrons on a 24/7 basis through Blackboard (LMS). Reference service is also available on a 24/7 basis through a consortium, Maryland AskUsNow. A 20 seat lab is available for information literacy instruction.

    Mission

    Baltimore City Community College Library supports the learning objectives of the institution and provides onsite and remote access to resources, instruction and services that meet the diverse informational needs of our community. The Library provides leadership in fostering information competency, empowers our community to become critical and effective information users, and cooperates with libraries, networks, and consortia in sharing resources to provide maximum access to information. We evaluate library resources and services on a regular and systematic basis and participate in the college’s planning and evaluation process.  The Library staff is committed to working together as a team to build a student-centered library in which quality services and student success are primary goals recognized and shared by all staff. 

    Vision

    The BCCC Library strives to provide an accessible and flexible learning environment that meets the research and informational needs of a diverse community of learners, providing high-quality resources and services to patrons in support of lifelong learning.
