What’s Happening?


Quest Changes

While you are away from campus this summer the Quest library system will be upgraded. One of the new features we are hoping to implement is delivery of library notices via text messaging. You would have to opt for that option. More information to follow.


Photocopier/Scanner Upgrades

The photocopiers available in each library will be replaced this summer with machines that can be used for photocopying or scanning to email or flash drive. If not available before then, you will be able to use your Eagle ID for scanning and photocopying on at least one machine in O'Neill.



Graduating in May?

If you are graduating in May but staying in the area, you can continue to use the BC libraries and continue to borrow materials. Check out what's available to you on the Alumni Library Services web page.


O'Neill Update



Expanded Hours

In response to requests from the student members of the Quality of Student Life Committee, Tom Wall, the new University Librarian, has expanded the early morning hours for O'Neill Library. The library will now open at 7:30 a.m., Monday through Friday, and at 9 a.m. on Sunday during the academic year. Check out the new hours which began March 15.


Too Noisy for You?

Disposable earplugs are available in the course reserves reading room.



Laptop Users

The library has placed surge protectors throughout the building to allow multiple users access to individual electrical outlets. Long range plans call for the addition of more outlets in the building.


Need to Fax?

Members of the Boston College Community can fax for free in the Document Services Center.
