Access to Library Resources During Spring Break
Both LBCC campuses, including their libraries, will be closed during Spring Break, Sunday, April 24 through Sunday, May 1. The libraries will reopen on Monday, May 2.
Despite the closure, many library services and collections will remain available:
- Discuss research needs with a reference librarian online at any time 24/7. Visit the library web page http://lib.lbcc.edu/ , click on “Ask a Librarian,” then “virtual chat.”
- Access and retrieve full text journal articles, e-books, art images, and reference materials from any web-enabled computer. Connect to the library web page, click on “Articles and Databases” on the panel at the left side of the screen, then click the “Off Campus” button in the center of the screen to authenticate yourself. Return to the list of databases paid for by the library to make your selections.
- Study, borrow, and compute at CSULB Library. CSULB observed its Spring Break at the end of March, and the University Library, which partners with LBCC Libraries, will be open throughout the April 24-May 1 period. LBCC students, faculty, and staff may borrow books and media by presenting a current campus ID. Register at the reception desk for a guest pass to use library databases (limit: 90 minutes per 24 hours).
