UPDATES

Due Dates for 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 until campus reopens. 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.

Request Scanned Chapters of Textbooks on Reserve

You can now request a chapter of a textbook on reserve to be scanned and emailed to you, if a textbook on reserve is not available freely online. To place a request, click on Search the Library to get started, and then sign in (located in the upper right corner) with your OCC username and password.  For more details and step-by-step instructions, visit the Requesting Books & Scanned Chapters page.

Request Books and DVDs to Pickup Curbside 

You can now request to pickup books curbside (behind the library). To place a request, click on Search the Library to get started, and then sign in (located in the upper right corner) with your OCC username and password.  For more details and step-by-step instructions, visit the Requesting Books, DVDs, & Scanned Chapters page.  Curbside pickup is Monday - Thursday 1-3pm.
