Student ID cards:
All students must show a valid student ID when checking out books. There are two options: MyBC card and MyBC Mastercard. MyBC Cards are made in the library. See the Circulation Desk for more details. Your MyBC Card will need to be updated each semester you are enrolled at Brazosport College. If your MyBC Card is lost, stolen or damaged beyond use within 12 months of receiving it there will be a replacement fee. This is $10.00 for the MyBC card and $20.00 for the MyBC Mastercard.
Anyone enrolled in Community Education classes can obtain a student ID from the Circulation Desk.
Community library cards:
Library users from the community may secure a non-student library card at the circulation desk. There is a $5.00 per year fee for a non-student library card.
The borrower will be held responsible for all library materials checked out under his or her card.
Students are normally limited to six books checked out at any one time. There are some exceptions for students enrolled in Honors courses.
Non-students, continuing education students, as well as Texshare Card students from other colleges will be limited to two books at any one time.
All users of the library are subject to fines. Fines are $0.25 per day for each regular 2-week check out item not returned on time. Fines are $0.50 per day on rental books. Fines for 3-day, 1-week, and overnight items are $3.00 per day.
Fines shall accumulate to a maximum of $10.00 for regular items and $40.00 for reserve items, until the material is returned or reported lost. Fines on library materials continue to accrue when the library is open, even if classes are not being held.
Library staff members may also help students secure a library card through existing state or area consortia providing circulation privileges at other state colleges.
Library staff members will assist faculty, staff and students in acquiring interlibrary loan materials needed in support of the educational program. Non-students are not eligible for interlibrary loans.
Read the attached interlibrary loan policy for borrower responsibilities, borrowing limitations and procedures for placing a request.
Interlibrary loan requests can be submitted online. Please read policy prior to submitting a request.
