The BCC Library is located in Room 219 of the Black Cultural Center and is Purdue's premiere source for knowledge about African American culture and experience. An ideal place for individual and group research, the library holds a special collection of over 7,000 books, journals, and media. Patrons can enjoy the public reading area, use the listening and viewing station, or reserve one of the three private study rooms.
