Library Services

The College Library, 2010 recipient of the Association of College & Research Libraries’ Excellence in Academic Libraries Award, provides resources and services on all three campuses and online through its web pages (http://www.bucks.edu/academics/learn/library/).  The Library collection includes over 100,000 books and 300 print periodicals, as well as video and sound recordings.  All of these are searchable through the Online Catalog, which also provides direct online access to about 5,000 electronic books and more than 10,000 streaming videos.  Nearly 25,000 electronic journals, as well as electronic reference materials, newspapers, and art images, are available through the Library’s collection of databases, which is available both on and off campus; off-campus access requires user login.

The Library provides information and media literacy instruction in College courses, both face-to-face and online, to guide students in finding, evaluating, and utilizing research resources in their course assignments.  Reference assistance is available in person and by telephone, email, instant message, and text.  Computers are available in all three campus libraries for research and use of MS Office applications, and Technology Learning Center (TLC) staff provide on-site and remote assistance with technology.  Visit http://www.bucks.edu/academics/learn/library/ for hours and other information.
