Special Requests

There are many ways the library can help get library materials and research strategies to your students. Please contact Mariel Carter, College Librarian, for special requests, including:

  • Books in Bulk: Asking your students to research a topic and think it would help them to browse through a bunch of books? The library can send bags of books from the library to the West Campus for your students to browse and check out. 
  • Zoom or In-Person Library Instruction: If you would like your class to see a live demonstration of the library's catalog or databases, please ask about scheduling a library instruction session.
  • Something else? Let's collaborate!

Please call the Bay College Library (906-217-4055) or send an email to with questions.
