Welcome to Spring 2020!


Wishing you a great start to the Spring Semester! 

Library hours are: 
Monday - Thursday: 7:30am - 9:00pm
Friday: 7:30am - 3:00pm
Saturday:  10:00am - 3:00pm
Sunday: CLOSED



Some key resources include: 
  • Textbook Collection:  You can look up the courses you are in through our library catalog, and get the call number.  Then take the call number to the circulation desk.  You can check out a textbook for 2 hours to be used in the library. 
  • Computers: The library has a large computer lab.  It can be used to write papers or print out a paper quickly.  
  • Scanner: The book scanner is available for you to use freely.  It scans to a USB drive, so make sure to bring one with you -- if you don't own one -- don't worry -- you can borrow one from the Circulation Desk. 
  • Get Help: Librarians are available at the Reference Desk whenever the Library is open.  Stop by to get help with a research question, locating a textbook call number, or finding the information you need.

  • Much of the library's online journal, magazine, and newspaper content
  • Streaming films and documentaries
What else can I do with OCC Discovery?
