The BMCC Library plays a vital role in the teaching and learning process. Through its various services, the library connects people, technology, and resource collections for student success in academics and in the pursuit of lifelong learning goals.
Located in Pioneer Hall on the Pendleton campus, the library provides a physical space for BMCC students, staff, and faculty and the general public to use a carefully selected collection of books, eBooks, video tapes, DVDs, periodicals, and newspapers. Individual carrels accommodate quiet study while mezzanine rooms provide for small group work and media listening/viewing sessions. Computer workstations and networked study carrels for
laptops are available along with a copier, scanner, and printer.
The library’s Web-based homepage, www.bluecc.edu/library, expands
its collection and the availability of academic products and library services to students. Here, research is guided by links to subscription-based indexes and full-text databases, recommended Websites, request forms, study aids, and tutorials. The online public catalog provides rapid identification of media and print holdings at BMCC, other schools, and public
and academic libraries in eastern Oregon. BMCC library cards, available to all students, allow access to additional services, including remote access to Web-based journal and newspaper databases, and direct online requests for materials not in the BMCC library. The librarian and staff are available for reference assistance and course-related research instruction either in person or through “Ask a Librarian” feature on the Website.
Regardless of when and where you participate in courses, the library is available to teach you how to retrieve and evaluate information in a society that places increasing importance upon these skills. For more information, call 541-278-5915.
