The program offers full academic freedom for faculty, allowing them to select course materials they think are best for their curriculum and leverage BNC’s deep relationships with more than 6,000 publishers, creating a one-stop, simplified experience.

Delgado Community College students will also have 24/7 access to bartleby’s study resources, including experts who provide step-by-step explanations to questions in more than 30 subjects. In addition, students will have access to a virtual writing tool that provides essay building support, spelling and grammar checks, citation assistance, preventative plagiarism scans and AI-powered predictive scoring, among other features. Bartleby products and services are designed to improve student success and outcomes, offering pathways for learning that fit the schedules and demands of today's students.
