Welcome to the Humanities Resources Guide
The Magnolia Library provides access to a wide range of information (i.e books, journals, e-books, etc.) for humanities students and faculty. This guide was created to provide a starting place for humanities research at BRCC. Please use the tabs above to find articles, books, websites, and more with a focus on the humanities. If you have any questions or comments about this guide or resources for the humanities you can contact the Reference Desk at 225.216.8555 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please keep in mind that the librarians of Baton Rouge Community College are another resource that you can utilize. During Library hours a librarian is always available at the 2nd floor Reference Desk to help you with your research needs.
