Accessing the Databases

Easley Library's databases are subscription-based; therefore, a log-in is required if you are off campus to verify that you are a Bluefield College student or faculty/staff member.

  1. Click on the database of your choice. You will be sent to a Bluefield College log-in screen.
  2. Enter your username. Use only the beginning of your Bluefield College email address (everything that comes before "@"). The entire email address will not be accepted.
  3. Enter your password. Returning students should use the same password that you have used in the past to access library databases. New students should use the password that was sent in the initial letter from Bluefield College. This letter included information about your email, MyBC account, and library access. If you want to change your library access password, click on the Support tab in MyBC for IST support.
  4. After logging in, you will gain access to the database you chose. During that computer session, you may go to other databases without logging in again; however, when you close the browser, the computer session will end and you will have to log in the next time you return to the library's web pages.

Having access difficulties? Occasionally, passwords need to be reset or you may have forgotten your log-in information. You can go to MyBC and either retrieve your log-in credentials using the My Account Information feature or reset your password for MyBC and the library by clicking the "How can I reset my password?" link.
