  • Library Access Update

    As part of the recent prioritization project, the Library reviewed many of its services and attendant costs. Recognizing that any “free” service provided to non-students is actually subsidized by current tuition-paying students, a new cost structure for library access has been developed and is available on the Library Access page. This new cost structure indicates that some services which were previously free now come with a nominal cost. For questions or concerns regarding this change, please contact Dr. Gregg Geary, Dean of the Library, at gregg.geary@biola.edu.

  • Media Items Now Available Through LINK+

    Good news! As of August 8, 2018, Biola students, staff and faculty may now request media items (DVDs, CDs, audiobooks, etc.) through LINK+. Items can be checked out for 21 days or 7 days, as determined by the lending library. The Visiting Patron and Pickup Elsewhere options are also available for media items. For more information, see LINK+.

  • Electronic Course Reserves Now on Canvas

    Before learning management systems such as Canvas became available, the Library digitized and made available electronic course reserves through its Course Reserves system. The Library will no longer provide electronic course reserves. Instead, digital course readings and other materials should be made available to students through Canvas. Canvas creates a more seamless experience for students and faculty by integrating readings into a single point for accessing course materials. The Library will continue to provide course reserves for physical materials, such as full length books and media.

    See FAQs about electronic course reserves for more information.

  • Now Offering Test Proctoring Services

    The Biola Library Test Proctoring Center offers proctoring services for Biola students and members of the community who need to have an examination proctored. Our services include both paper testing and online testing in a convenient, comfortable, and secure proctored environment at a reasonable cost. This service will meet or exceed the best practices established by the National College Testing Association (NCTA).

    See Test Proctoring Service for more information.
