Academic Support Center

We encourage you to use the tutoring, study helps, and writing and research services available in the Academic Support Center located on the Library's first floor. For more information, click here.

Connect to BCInternet

BCInternet is available in the Library and is designed to require minimal to zero configuration to access. Wireless network cards typically detect the wireless network automatically. If you wish to connect to BCInternet, enable your wireless network card, connect to the available network, register your wireless device, follow the on-screen instructions, and you should be able to access the Internet.  If your wireless connection is not working, check here for more help.
