Your Library Account
To login to your account in the RSAcat library catalog, click on “Login” in the upper right hand corner of the screen, then enter your library barcode number and PIN. The first time you login, enter CHANGEME as your PIN. Click on My Account in the menu bar across the top. We strongly recommend that you change your PIN after your first login by using the Change My PIN option within My Account. You may view your library account, request items and renew your items. My Account gives you the ability to view your own record, including items checked out, overdue, fines or bills, and items you have requested.

Borrowing Privileges
A current LRC EC library card is required to borrow materials from the library and use materials in the reserve collection. Current BHC EC students, faculty and staff may apply for a library card at no charge at the Circulation Desk with a photo ID. Please feel free to ask us about other ways to get the resources you need.

Loan Periods

  • Books from the general collection = 3 weeks;  10 books, limit of 3 items in a subject area; DVDs = 7 days, limit of 3.
    Renewals are permitted if not requested by another patron.
  • Reserve items = 3 hour, library use only, or 24 hour overnight
    (determined by the faculty member teaching the course)
  • Reference materials may be available for 24 or 48 hour loan with permission from the librarian.
  • Periodicals [except for the most recent issue] are available for 7 day loan.

Returning Items
Materials can be returned at the Circulation Desk.

Late Fees and Payment of Damaged or Lost Items

  • Overdue LRC library books do not usually accrue fines.
  • Overdue DVDs are $1.00 per day up to $20.00.
  • Items borrowed from other libraries may accrue fines determined by the lending library.
  • Lost items = replacement cost + $10 processing fee.
  • Damaged items = assessed according to extent of damage.
  • Lost cards: The patron is responsible for all materials checked out to his/her library card. A lost card should be reported immediately. Cost to replace a lost card is $1.

Fines and bills for lost or unreturned items will be attached to the student account at the end of the semester. A library card with delinquent fines or bills cannot be used to borrow materials from BHC EC or other libraries in the RSAcat system.
