What If I Cannot Come During Reference Hours?

Patrons who are unable to come to the Library during reference hours can reach librarians by four methods:

(1) Library's website at http://www.bhcc.edu/library

(2) "Chat with a Librarian!" interface on the library's homepage.

(2) Telephone - Please call (617) 228-2213

(3) Email - bhcclibrary@bhcc.edu

Ask a Librarian chat is designed to assist library users with brief research questions, such as how to fine information on a particular topic using the library’s online catalog or electronic resources.

More complex questions, such as those requiring in-depth knowledge of a subject or resource, may require the librarian to suggest an alternative method of communication, such as an in-person reference appointment.

Can I Print Or Make Copies In the Library?

Yes. Patrons can print and make copies in the Library. You must have your BHCC login and password to do so.  The limit on printing is 30 pages.
