We know that not everyone is used to navigating college courses online, so we have created a library of video tutorials to help you with some of our most common questions.
Online classes offer an experience unique from that of a traditional college classroom. There is usually an adjustment period for most students as they learn the rhythm and patterns of online communication. Here are some tips for starting off on the right foot.
Bay State College students taking courses online can still make use of many of the Library’s most valuable resources including: ProQuest, LexisNexis, JSTOR, and Gale.
The online databases provide students with high-quality articles from scholarly journals, newspapers, and magazines. All that is needed to access these resources is a valid Bay State email and password. Please do not hesitate to contact the campus librarians for help.
