FAQs:

1. Who can get an electronic library barcode?

Any student who is taking only distance or online courses.  Students who are taking one or more on-campus or hybrid classes should come to the library in person to get a picture taken for a OneCard (http://www.bhcc.edu/library/bhccidcard/).

2. What can the library barcode be used for?

With an electronic library barcode, you can:

  • Log into your library account
  • Access the library databases from home

With an electronic library barcode, you cannot:

  • Use it as a photo ID
  • Get your refund
  • Borrow books from the BHCC library
  • Request books from other libraries

To use these services, come to campus and get a picture taken for your OneCard (http://www.bhcc.edu/library/bhccidcard/).

4. How much does it cost?

Electronic barcodes are free.

5. How long does it take to get my electronic barcode?

You should get a response via email within three business days.

6. Do I also need a library password?

Yes.  Once you have your electronic barcode, you can create your library password here (https://bunkerhill.noblenet.org/eg/opac/password_reset).

7. How do I sign into my library account?

Go here (https://bunkerhill.noblenet.org/eg/opac/login) and type your barcode and library password.

8. How do I access the databases from home?

The library's databases are located at http://bhcc.edu/library/databases/

You will need your barcode and library password.  When you try to use the library's databases from home, you will see a page that asks for your barcode number and your password. Type these in the boxes and press Submit.

If you log in once, you should stay logged in for a little while. However, if you leave the computer for a long period of time, or if you shut down or put your computer to sleep, you will need to sign in again.

9. How do I get help with the library databases?

If you are unable to log into the databases from home, please come in, call, or email us ASAP.
