Borrowing PrivilegesFaculty members are entitled to semester-long loan periods.

Course ReservesFaculty members are invited to place books, chapters, articles, and other materials on Reserve. There are five loan periods available: 2-hour in-library use only, 24-hour overnight, 2-day, 3-day, 7-day.

Please allow at least 3 days for library staff to process the materials before directing students to borrow reserves.

Students must present their library card to borrow Reserve materials.

Information Literacy

Information literacy is the ability to locate information, evaluate it, and use it effectively. Working with faculty, librarians introduce students to skills needed to become independent life-long information consumers.

Schedule a Class Session

BHC faculty may schedule a library instruction session for students who have assignments that require research.

Library sessions are most effective when scheduled after the research assignment has been introduced to students and after students have had time to develop initial research topics so that they can use those topics during the session.

If you would like to schedule library research time for your class without a librarian present, please contact the Reference Desk, 309-796-5147, or e-mail LibraryRef@bhc.edu.

Any faculty member who wishes to learn more about how information skills can be integrated with a particular course or program is encourages to contact a BHC librarian.
