The Jonathan Edwards Library Facility

The Jonathan Edwards Library building forms the southern side of BCC's central campus quadrangle. The Library occupies most of this two-story structure. It provides a pleasant environment for research, study, tutoring, browsing, and other activities.

The main level houses the circulation and reference departments, online catalog, and other public areas as well as the library office and college archives. Most current periodical issues are conveniently arranged in the browsing room. Check the "New Books" stand here for recent acquisitions, and the adjacent display area for subject exhibits of current interest. The periodical stacks provide open access to five years worth of back issues; other back issues are on microfilm or in storage. Public access catalog (PAC) computers are available along with other computers for additional access to periodical literature and other online information. A photocopier, microfilm reader/printers, and various audiovisual machines are also stationed here. The library office has a fax machine and copier for faculty and staff use.

Most of the books are located on the lower level of the Library. They are called circulating books because they may be checked out and circulated outside the library. Study carrels, tables, and a PAC computer are also located on the lower level.
