Overdues, Fines, and Fees
The library may charge overdue fees for late items.
Items lost or returned but deemed beyond repair are billed at a cost determined by the library plus processing fees. Fees are also charged for items deemed damaged but usable or repairable.
Overdue items or unpaid library fees or fines will result in a hold on registration, grades, and transcripts as well the suspension of borrowing privileges.
Accounts with materials overdue for two months or more are sent to an agency for collection.
All terminals have access to the Internet, licensed databases, the Microsoft Office Suite, and are available for public and student use. Student research has priority on all computers at all times.
The library requires all users to comply with its computer use policy and the college’s policy, both of which are available on the campus web site. Failure to adhere to these policies may result in loss of privileges.
The 1800 Building offers free wireless internet access (BigBend_Public). No password is required.
The library offers a variety of study spaces from individual carrels to study rooms of varying sizes. Study rooms can fit four to eight but larger configurations are available on request. All rooms include whiteboards and most have media viewing capabilities. While quieter, the rooms are not soundproof, please be respectful of your neighbors, erase the whiteboards, and leave the room as clean as possible for the next user. The rooms are currently available on a first-come-first-served basis but we are looking into scheduling them.
It is the library's goal to serve all users to the best of our ability and in compliance with ADA regulations.
If you need accommodation or assistance of any kind please notify a library staff member. We will gladly assist you in identifying and utilizing the proper equipment or resource to meet your needs.
The eLearning office is in the library. Contact us for help with Canvas (BBCC’s online learning system), Panopto, and other online learning questions. E-mail eLearningAdmin@bigbend.edu or click “Help” in Canvas to report problems. Be as specific as possible: which class, its location on the class site, and any details that may help. We are always happy to help and will get back to you as soon as possible.
