Library how-to: Renew your books online

You can easily and conveniently renew your OCC library books online.  Just go to the Library Catalog and click on the "My Account" tab, enter your Library card barcode number and select "Renew Books". If the items are already overdue or it is the due date, you will need to contact your campus library's Circulation Desk to renew.

Millions of books! MeLCat is here!

Your OCC Library just got bigger. MeLCat, the Michigan eLibrary Catalog, is now available to OCC students, staff and faculty with an OCC Library card. Get access to books, CDs, DVDs, and more in the 400+ participating libraries across the State of Michigan. Access this service online yourself and pick up your request at the OCC Library of your choice.
See this demo video to learn how.
In a hurry? Visit another library in MeLCat that owns the book and check it out directly with an OCC Library Card and a picture ID.
