Off Campus Access
The BRCC Library's online databases can be accessed off-campus with your BRCC Library User ID number and your library PIN.
Faculty, staff, and students should now log in to the databases with their new campus ID number (L, N, H, or new Bnumber, which is at the top of each person's schedule in LoLA) as their user ID and their 6 digit birthdate (mmddyy, i.e. 010294) as their PIN. The letter (L, N, etc.) in the user ID must be capitalized.
If you do not know your Library PIN, you can retrieve it by:
Going to the Library’s Online Catalog
Click on and clicking on ‘My Account’ – at the top of the page
Then click ‘I Forgot my PIN’
After entering your Library User ID number an email will be sent to your BRCC email with your PIN
You may change your PIN by clicking ‘User PIN Change’ from the 'My Account' screen.
PIN Change: On 10/14/14, your library PIN was changed to your 6 digit birth date, written as MMDDYY (ex.: Someone born on June 30, 1991 would use the PIN 063091).
If you are unable to access the online databases from home, we may need to update your library account information. To verify the status of your Library privileges, please call (225) 216-8555 or email
. A librarian will be happy to assist you. Please include your BRCC ID number in all correspondence with the Library.
