The Southwestern Oregon Community College (SWOCC) Library provides resources to students, faculty, staff, and community members. We belong to the COASTLINE library system to access books, movies, periodicals, and databases from across Coos and Curry Counties.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Is the library open?

We will be open with limited services to SWOCC students and staff Monday - Friday 10 AM - 6 PM.  We will have two computers available for reservation.  We will also have two other seats available first come, first served.  Unfortunately, the collection is not available for browsing.  We are happy to retrieve items for you! 

How do I reserve a computer?

Contact us the day you want an appointment.  We will schedule a time for you.  Reservations are two hours maximum.  Please be on time or we might have to give away your time slot.

Do I have to wear a mask?

Face coverings over your nose and mouth are required at all times in the library.

Can I print documents?

There are two ways to print documents.  1.  You can print during your computer reservation.  2.  You can attach your documents to an email and send them to [email protected].  Please include what day/time you would like to pick up your prints.  Also, please let us know if you’d like to pick them up at the library front desk OR our contactless curbside cart.  We will not charge students for printing at this time.  Unfortunately, we cannot scan or copy personal items.

How do I check out books and movies?

Students and staff can pick up library materials at our front desk OR our contactless curbside cart.  Place holds online with your Coastline library account or by contacting us.  If you would like curbside pickup, please call or email the library for an appointment time.  The cart is located underneath our 24-hour Book Return slot to the right of our main doors Tioga 2.  

How do I get materials from other Coastline Libraries?

You can choose “SWOCC Library” as a pick-up location when you order an item.  We receive Coastline deliveries on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please keep in mind that wait times are longer than normal.  Library items need to be quarantined for at least 24 hours before they can be used again.

How do I receive library help via Zoom?

Please send an email to your librarian Noelle Ebert. She will be happy to schedule an appointment with you!

Can I sign up for a library card?

Fill out a SWOCC Library card application online here.  You can also fill out a paper form at SWOCC Library.

Can I access library databases from off-campus?
