Library Services

The Brown Mackie College Library strives to serve the needs of the school’s students and instructors to the highest possible standards.  We welcome assisting you with your information needs.  The following procedures outline how the Library may assist you through reserving specific times and Library facilities to meet your educational goals.

Library Computer Lab Reservations

1)    The Library can be reserved by instructors:

Reservations may include tours, use of the computers, class research, and class projects for your students’ needs.  Librarians are also available to come to your classroom for database, informational, and research  tutorials.

2)  The Library can be reserved by students:

Student reservations must be for the purposes of class work, independent study classes, externships, club meetings, and group study sessions.  Individual computers can be reserved for practice tests, such as the ATI, and for proctored exams.  Up to four Library computers can be reserved by students during the same time period.

3) Repeating daily reservations :

Repeating daily reservations  for a student for an entire term can only be made for independent study or externships and should be made by the supervising faculty member.  Repeated ATI or exam reservations can only be made for  a week ahead.

4)  Reservations are first-come, first served.

Both instructors and and students will be informed of co-current reservations at the time the reservation is made.  For example:  If an instructor wishes to reserve a time when four computers have been reserved by students, then the instructor may reserve the remaining computers or schedule a time when all computers are available.

5) Reservations should be made at least 24 hours in advance.

Reservations should be made  at least 24 hours in advance and can be made for up to 3 hours.  Instructors may secure reservations beginning the last week of the term prior to which the class reservation is to be scheduled.  Students may reserve computers beginning on the first day of classes for the term.  Reservations may be made in person or by phone (Main Campus 513.672.1595, Norwood Campus 513.672.1596).

6) Reservations will be forfeited:

Reservations will be forfeited if either the class or the student arrives more than 20 minutes after the beginning of a reservation.  Computers can not be logged-on and held without a student using the computer for more than 5 minutes.  Repeated abuse of the reservation system will be subject to review and revocation of Library reservation privileges.

7) EVERYONE, both instructors and students, is expected to follow Library rules:

  • All Students, whether part of a class or individual students, should sign-in to the Library on the daily sign-in sheet at the Library desk.
  • Cell phones, both instructors’ and students’ should be turned OFF while in the Library.  Cell phones use, either voice, data or text is prohibited in the Library.
  • No food or drink is allowed in the Library except on special occassions designated by the Library Staff.
  • No children are permitted in the Library at any time attended/unattended.
  • Library tables, chairs, and materials should be returned to their proper location after use.

Everyone who makes a reservation should receive and read a copy of these policies and procedures.  failure to comply may result in a suspension of Library privileges.  If you have questions, please ask your Librarians.  We are here to help you meet your educational goals.
