The mission of the Bay State College Library is to provide resources, services and instruction in support of teaching, learning, and scholarship at Bay State College.
The Bay State College Library, located at 31 St. James Avenue, is committed to providing quality library services to students and faculty. The Library, which is staffed by a full-time librarian, an evening library assistant, and a weekend library assistant, provides information resources, study space, computers, and research instruction to support teaching and learning.
The Bay State College Library houses more than 11,000 books, 70+ print periodical subscriptions, and provides access to many online research databases. The Library has 20 computers, circulating laptops, a printer, and a coin-operated copy machine. Many, but not all, of the textbooks used each semester are kept on Reserve behind the front desk.
Through Massachusetts Library System membership, the Library participates in regional inter-library loan. Resources not available through the BSC Library may be borrowed from other libraries through this service. In addition, students have full borrowing privileges at the Boston Public Library, an excellent research facility located a few short blocks from the College. See the Boston Public library website for more information.
