OCC Library is CLOSED until further notice

In abundance of caution, OCC has suspended classes and closed the campus to students and the general public beginning March 16.

The Library and its services are also closed until further notice.

Library Books

If you have library books due, please do not come to campus to return them. The library will forgive all fines accrued on books due this week. Please ignore any overdue notices you receive, as our system sends those out automatically.  When the campus reopens, please return your books and we will adjust your library account accordingly.


Check the library catalog or free textbook list to see if your textbook is available online. Use the "Available Online" filter to see online books in the library search. You can also check and see if your book is available through VitalSource Helps program. This site allows you to download some textbooks free of charge, due to COVID-19 difficulties. You need to use your OCC email to sign up and not all texts are available. Directions are here.

Other Info

Workshops for March 17, 19, and 30th have been cancelled. ​

Beginning March 30th, you may ask the librarians questions by chat from the Library home page Monday-Thursday 8-9, Friday from 8-3, and Saturday 10 -3. 

If the situation changes, we will update this blog and put a notice on the website. Thanks!
