Don't worry about fines!
As of March 18, all LBCC Library checkouts have their due dates extended until June 12 or later. The Library has waived all late fines from every student and employee account, even those that accrued prior to COVID-19 related closures.

For items that belong to other libraries (interlibrary loan items), the issue of fines is in the purview of the lender. In those instances, please email libill@linnbenton.edu or return the items to the bookdrop just outside the Albany Campus Library.
LBCC Library and COVID-19
All Library services, including reference services / research help, interlibrary loan of journal articles, ordering materials for the Library collection - are still available through remote service. Many Library resources are already available online. The one main exception is checking out physical library books, DVDs, etc.; we will unfortunately be unable to provide that service, and instead will be promoting and instructing users on how to access our eBook and streaming video collections. If you have library materials that you need to access, please contact the Reference Desk at (541) 917-4645 or libref@linnbenton.edu.

Any changes to our services will be communicated by email and on this page.

The college has its own COVID-19 page, which has detailed information about other areas at LBCC.  The Learning Center also has a COVID-19 page.

Researching COVID-19

Access to laptops and Internet
Laptops are available for checkout to students who need them for the Spring term. You will be able to borrow the laptop for the whole term and it will not be due back until June.

Zoom Help for Students
In response to COVID-19, your instructor may ask you to use Zoom to participate in class. Zoom is LBCC’s tool for web-based video conferencing (meetings).
