Both the Bakersfield College main campus and Delano campus libraries have moved online. Library buildings are closed. Books that are currently checked out to students now have a due date of May 11, 2020. For information on how to effectively use the library from off campus, please visit the Off-Campus Research LibGuide.
All Library workshops and orientations have shifted to a virtual format for the remainder of the term. For faculty and students who need to access the material, we have libguides for each workshop available online and also as Canvas modules that can be imported into your Canvas Class Shells.
With the library fully online, electronic databases are available, while access to hard copy materials is not.
For more information or to answer questions, please contact the library using the "Ask a Librarian" live chat window available on the Library Home page.
