The Library offers a full range of services to currently registered faculty, staff and students of Owens Community College. Students are registered automatically; however, faculty and staff must complete a registration form and return it to the Library. The Owens Express ID Card is required for Library services.
OCC Book Circulation: Faculty may borrow books for the semester.
OhioLINK Book Borrowing: Occasionally you may find that the Owens Library does not have some of the books you may want. In this case, currently registered patrons may request books via computer directly from other OhioLINK libraries. These books will be delivered to the Library on the campus you designate, or another OhioLINK library of your choosing, for pickup. This procedure is free and usually takes 3-5 days for delivery. Contact a Librarian for a demonstration.
Audiovisual Circulation: AV materials may be borrowed for seven days with one renewal. Limited AV materials are available for borrowing through OhioLINK. Streaming video is also available through Films on Demand [On-Campus].
Online Renewal: You may renew material online here.
Fines: Faculty members are exempt from paying fines on Owens books only. There is a $.50 per day charge for overdue OhioLINK books. Library privileges may be revoked, including AV Equipment sign-out, access to web resources and OhioLINK borrowing privileges, until the items are returned and fines are paid.
Interlibrary Loan: For hard-to-find materials, we may be able to borrow the items from other libraries worldwide. This procedure can take two-three weeks for delivery, depending upon where the material is coming from and how the material is sent. There is a charge for this service; however, you determine the maximum price you are willing to pay. Most libraries outside of Ohio charge between $10.00-$15.00 per item.
Class Reserve Material: Instructors may put items on class reserve for In-library Use Only or Overnight Loan. Electronic Reserves, featuring anytime and anyplace access, is also available. Check with the librarian for copyright information.
