Library 101 For Students: Online Services

A short introduction to the CCBC Libraries

Welcome Back, CCBC Students!

We hope you had a great summer, and that you were able to stay safe and healthy! The CCBC Campus Libraries are open but there are some new protocols and policies in place to keep us all safe and healthy during this pandemic. For more information on how the college is operating during this time take a look at CCBC's Plans for a Phased Reopening.

Most CCBC classes are being taught online or in remote modalities for the fall semester. Here you can find tons of online resources to make you successful in your classes. Take a look at the different tabs on this guide for help with research (lots of videos and tutorials), choosing a topic, News and Misinformation, and more.
