Hang Out at the BSC Library

The BSC Library is a good place to be during finals week.  


  • Need a quiet place to study?
    • The quiet reading room is a no talking/no group study/no cell phone zone.
  • Need a place to spread your stuff out or work on group projects?
    • The Library commons is designed for that. We don’t mind a little noise.
    • Two study rooms are also available.
  • Need computer resources? Faxing? Photocopies?
    • We have public access PCs, a printer, a scanner, a photocopier, and faxing services.
    • Our lab is the campus open lab in the evenings — 5 to 8:45 p.m., Monday-Thursday.

Librarians are here to help. ASK US! Good luck with your finals.
