Library 101 For Students: Adjusting for COVID-19

A short introduction to the CCBC Libraries

Library Response to COVID-19

With the announcement by Dr. Kurtinitis that CCBC will be moving to alternative and online teaching methods until April 30, 2020, the libraries at each campus will be closed beginning Monday, March 16, 2020 at 12:00pm until Monday March 30, 2020. Stay tuned for updates.

But the Library has lots of resources and tools to help you through this transition. Take a look at the different tabs on this guide for help with research (lots of videos, tutorials, and quizzes), choosing a topic, Fake News (something we all want to be wary about during this health crisis), and more. Take a look at our guide below for Adjusting Your Study Habits During COVID-19.

Librarians will also be checking the library reference desk emails frequently throughout CCBC's closure. Please send us questions at essexlibref@ccbcmd.edu, dlibrary@ccbcmd.edu, crefdesk@ccbcmd.edu.

Don't forget the Student Success Centers are available thorough email too: catonsvillessc@ccbcmd.edu, essexssc@ccbcmd.edu, dundalkssc@ccbcmd.edu, owingsmillsssc@ccbcmd.edu.
