Techonology Support

Technology Support Center in O'Neill Library

Technology Support Center opened on the main level of O'Neill in September. Need help with wireless access? Scanning software? Visit the Center - it's staffed with students that can help you with basic technology problems.


Have You Studied Abroad?

International Education Week is taking place 15-19 November. To help celebrate it, the Libraries are planning a small exhibit in the lobby of O'Neill Library. We'd like to feature a number of BC students who've studied abroad. Included in the exhibit would be a paragraph or two by the students about their experiences abroad, reactions to foreign educational systems, positive/negative views of the foreign country, etc. It'd be great too if the students could supply some relevant photographs. If you're interested, please contact Brendan Rapple. Phone is 617-552-4482.


Late Night Hours

Late Night

Late night hours were expanded. O'Neill Library is now open until 3 a.m., Sunday through Thursday.



O'Neill Library Entrance

The O'Neill entrance vestibule had a facelift. New tile and benches were installed, and a new place to put student publications was created. A flat screen, visible to the outside, was also installed. Contact Michael Creedon if you would like to advertise a university event on the screen.


MultiMedia Resource Center

The newly created Multimedia Resource Center (MRC) on Level 3 in O'Neill houses two video editing workstations where you can edit audio and video; create graphics, presentations, interactive websites, interfaces, mobile content, and more! Drop-in and check in with the Reference Desk for more information. Software includes iMovie HD for video clip making; Audacity for audio dubbing and clip making; Final Cut Studio for high-end video editing; TechSmith Camtasia for screen capture and tutorials production; Roxio Toast Titanium 10 for DVD/CD burning and a number of different programs included in Adobe CS5 Web Premium (Creative Suite 5).



Greenery in O'Neill Library

Plants were added to the main floor of O'Neill the past few months adding color to the environment and oxygen to the air!


Libraries Respond to Gasson Closing

Libraries are providing space for university programs while Gasson is being renovated. Concerts, including Music in the Afternoon, are being scheduled in Gargan Hall. After the first concerts, many of the students studying in Gargan Hall stayed on to listen to the music. Here's a link to the full schedule of music programs. The Reserve Room in O'Neill is a favorite spot for university programming this year as well. Advanced notice is always given when you have to temporarily move to another space in either Bapst or O'Neill.
