BUC's library in Drammen is one of three partners in the joint library 'Drammensbiblioteket'. The joint library uses two different library catalogues. To search for materials and to renew loans, you need to check in two different systems: the University college's database BIBSYS and the public and county library database Bibliofil.
To get a complete overview of the collections, and to get a complete overview of your loans, you need to check both databases.
Drammensbiblioteket covers almost three floors of the Knowledge Park Papirbredden. You'll find the BUC-librarians and our reference desk on the 3rd floor.
BUC-students use their student card as their library card. The patron ID will be marked on the back of the card as a barcode with text below: hibuXXXXX where XXXXXX is equal to your student-id.
Before you can check-out books and other materials , your card must be activated:
1. Visit the studentweb and register your "yes" to begin activating your Joint library card. You enter the studentweb menu on the "Registrations" and "Acceptance" (see photo below).
NOTE: The National Register is updated at night. That means you must wait until the day after you have answered "yes" in the studentweb before the next step in activation of your library card.
2. Visit the service desk on the 3rd floor in the library to activate the card.
Once that's done, you're ready to check out books, films, music or other from the libraries' collections!
