Is My Textbook Available in the Library?

As a general rule, the OCC Libraries do not own copies of your current textbooks. However, your instructor may have placed a copy on Course Reserve in your campus library for use on a limited basis. Check the Library Catalog to see if your textbook might be available. See the full Library Textbook Policy or more information.


Also, a new feature in the online OCC Raiders Store indicates if your textbook is available through the OCC Libraries. This is a pilot project so there may not be many results available.  Click the image at the right to see where to find the Library note in the Raiders Store. If the note does not display in the Raiders Store results, you might still check the Library Catalog or ask a Librarian to be sure.
